Artist's Description

It is somewhat rare to have a lot of snowfall at Joshua Tree National Park, however when it does snow, it should not be missed. There are many places on the western part of the park to explore, including Jumbo Rocks. Here, you can see snow covering the creosote bushes and spidery ocotillo. Near the rock are small jumping cholla cactus covered in snow.

Some information about this park:
Joshua Tree has some of most unique shaped trees but also has a very interesting and complex rock system. Through erosion the exposed granite monoliths and rocks became worn and loose and sometimes you can find verticle cuts through the rocks, which are referred to as monzogranite. These broken terrace walls, which appear here on the left side is a formation known as a dike, which was formed from molten rock pushing into these joint fractures.

These type of rocks can be seen in the areas known as Jumbo Rocks, Wonderland of Rocks, and Split Rock which are labeled on the map of the park and easy to find.
