Above: 190° view from Keys View in Joshua Tree National Park (JTNP), California. The elevation here is about 5,100 ft. (1,555 meters) and the wind currents from the San Gorgonio pass can be very powerful. But that wind can be put to good, environmental use (I imaged the photograph on this page the same day as the image above -- very windy!). For the photo above, be sure to scroll your browser left to right so that you may see the entire panorama. I have captured many more JTNP pics; see the following pages: Cottonwood/Colorado-Desert Section, Wonderland of Rocks, Ryan Mountain, Lost Horse Valley, and Keys View (another, more scenic version of Keys view).
