Joshua Tree NP - Arch Rock Hike

The Arch Rock hike is a short (0.5-mile) nature walk that leads through some of the most interesting geological features of Joshua Tree NP. So we were told. Unfortunately, our understanding of geology is extremely limited, and we only group rocks into 2 categories: pretty or not. Luckily, Arch Rock belongs to the category "pretty" and we had fun scrambling on top of it and taking pictures of ourselves with the rock.

My husband, a rockstar :)

Interesting "uplifted" rocks:

We thought that more appropriate name for Arch Rock would be "Elephant Rock":
