Joshua Tree National Park is an inspiring spot. It's a place full of a great variety of textures; prickly cactus, rough stone, sandy foot-paths, spiked succulents, and weathered wood. The monzogranite rock formations of this place are simply stunning. But the colors of the place are strikingly muted: greys, browns, tans, taupes, silvers, and golds. These neutrals combine together to form a warm golden tan, strikingly juxtaposed by a brilliant blue sky.
