Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Joshua Tree yucca plant

Yucca plant along a gravel road in Joshua Tree National Park

Joshua Tree National Park is known and named for the Joshua tree, but here is a picture of a Joshua Tree yucca plant. Another plant that gives this beautiful stark desert park in Southern California its cool identity is the yucca plant. I wonder if they ever considered calling it Yucca Plant National Park. Here is a shot close to the southern entrance visitor’s center.


The goal of Traveling Ted is to inspire people to outdoor adventure travel and then provide tips on where and how to go.
