One of the many things that I got to see while out in California visiting my brother and his twin boys was the Joshua tree. I first heard of a Joshua Tree from the band U2, and never thought it was an actual tree. These things are awesome, and very unique. They almost look like a combination of a pine tree and a palm tree. They have the bark and grow similar to a palm tree, but they have needles instead of palm leafs. They also grow a lot of different branches of the main branch. Very cool tree!!
