The Mojave Desert occupies a significant portion of southeastern California and smaller parts of central California; southern Nevada, southwestern Utah and northwestern Arizona in the United States. Named after the Mohave tribe of Native Americans, it displays typical basin and range topography.
Joshua tree : Yucca brevifolia is a plant species belonging to the genus Yucca. It is tree-like in habit, which is reflected in its common names: Joshua tree, yucca palm, tree yucca, and palm tree yucca.
This monocotyledonous tree is native to southwestern North America in the states of California, Arizona, Utah and Nevada, where it is confined mostly to the Mojave Desert between 400 and 1,800 meters (1,300 and 5,900 ft) elevation. It thrives in the open grasslands of Queen Valley and Lost Horse Valley in Joshua Tree National Park. A dense Joshua tree forest also exists in Mojave National Preserve, in the area of Cima Dome.

Although Minerva Hamilton Hoyt was successful in establish Joshua Tree as a National Monument, the true ambition of its indoctrination as a National Park did not come until 1994 when President Clinton signed the Desert Protection Act that added 234,000 acres to Joshua Tree national Monument, thus granting it National Park status. An exhibit detailing the events of Minerva Hamilton Hoyt’s life can be seen at the Women's Museum of California in San Diego.
