It’s always an interesting drive up through Wickenburg and along the Joshua Tree Highway, which is the name given to part of Highway 93. Joshua trees are amazing plants, and this area makes me remember a science fiction story I read when I was a kid, where the main character found himself in a house built like a point-down tetrahedron.
He got lost inside, finally found a door, and went outside. He found himself in the Joshua Tree Forest, but he didn’t know what they were and thought he was on another planet! Yes, they’re that weird.
