Print of the Month – Desert Pinnacle Impression

March 9th, 2010

A remote area of Queen Valley in Joshua Tree National Park was the location for the next print of the month.  This towering spire defies the imagination.  Besides its imposing beauty, one wonders how it could possibly have formed.

After trekking for 45 minutes across the trackless desert, deeper and deeper into Queen Valley, one finally arrives at this magnificent outcrop of granite, one of many for which Joshua Tree is justly famous.  But this particular one is special and not simply because of its inaccessibility.  The granite forms seem to pile one on the other, reaching higher and higher until they are capped by a single, splendid pinnacle.
