Lots of Joshua Trees are near Palmdale, CA (taken on June 25, 2011
During my 2011 Cajon Pass trip, I went to my HO scale (1:87) Joshua Tree producer to pick up my model trees for my layout. On the way back to Cajon, I drove up Soledad Canyon and passed Palmdale. There are plenty Joshua Trees along the road and I took the chance to take photos of the real thing.

No question, Joshua Trees are faszinating. None looks the same and we do have an endless variety.
So, after all, I found the perfect Joshuas in HO scale (1:87) for my layout. They are made by Mason Clark, a young couple living near Soledad Canyon. Photos of the model trees can be seen on page 2 - click here. Look for MS Trains logo and "new generation" posted on 10/11/11.
