In Joshua Tree right off Highway 62 there are cute metal dinosaur art installations on the side of the road that are free to visit. There's a gold mom and baby Brontosaurus, and two toothy meat-eaters. These dinosaurs were added in front of Desert View Homes to attract attention. They are also a fun stop for a quick snapshot if your visiting Joshua Tree National Park.
Elmer’s bottle tree ranch is just off highway 40 on Route 66. It’s a plot of land filled will artistic trees made from old collected bottles and found objects. Elmer inherited these bottles from his father who collected them and other antiques. He turned this junk into over 200 art installations free for all to explore.
If I could describe Burning Man in one word it'd be "surreal." In fact, the whole festival feels a bit like stepping into a Dali painting. I admit, I was skeptical even through my first day and half of being there. Now I'm convinced it's one of those experiences that you'll covet forever.
Salvation Mountain is a great work of art by the late Leonard Knight. It’s quite a beautiful site, vibrant and colorful against the desert landscape.
