This is a really cool place to stop in Joshua Tree. I recommend going towards sundown because the cactus looked beautiful at that time. Make sure to take a pamphlet at the beginning of the garden walk before walking through to learn about the garden.

If you are visiting Joshua Tree NP, this is a neat place to stop and see. Stay away from the cacti. They are difficult and painful to remove, even with tweezers.

This is a short walk through a beautiful garden. Stay on trail and keep away from the cacti... I saw some tourists ignore the signs and get pricked pretty bad!

in the evening the sun will make the thorns on the cacti glow white. Very cool.

So many bees out right now! The garden is amazing, especially closer to sunset when the cacti look even fluffier with the sun at their back.
