Dead U2 Joshua Tree

Dead U2 Joshua Tree
This is all that is left of the Joshua tree made famous by the band U2. It was featured on the cover of their 5th studio album, titled Joshua Tree. Many people think this tree is located in Joshua Tree National Park, but that is not correct. It's located a short jaunt (0.3 miles as the crow flies) off Hwy 190 about halfway between Darwin, CA and Owens Lake. GPS coordinates are N36 19.852 W117 44.722.

I'm not really a fan of U2. We stopped here out of curiosity. I was surprised to see all the junk people had left behind as some sort of memorial.

Huh ... I was hoping we'd come across that someday, but I still haven't found what I'm looking for.

Hate to see any place messed up like this. Didn't even know there was an album about a Joshua tree
