Parents and Teachers: Please note we are making some internal changes to the site. As a result, the Great American Multiplication Challenge, Spellerz!, Burnside's Billions and couple of other games will not show statistics or return save codes for the next few days. They will be playable, but no data will be saved. They should be fully functional again by the end of the week. As always, please support this site by following me on FACEBOOK or TWITTER.

Joshua Tree

   
 
 
 

Joshua Tree National Park, located in southeastern California features the junction of two deserts, the Colorado Desert and the Mojave Desert. The famous Joshua Trees inhabit the Mojave portion of the park. Joshua Trees are unusual looking trees that grow only in the Mojave Desert. They can live hundreds of years and take a long time to reach full height (40 feet high). The trees were named by Mormons crossing the desert in the 1800’s. They reminded them of Joshua reaching his hands to the sky.
