along California State Route 190 (the highway that bisects Death Valley National Park from west to east) about 21 km (13 mi) southeast of the village of Keeler just before the park’s west gate the group spotted a lone Joshua tree in the desert a short distance south of the road – unusual, as Joshua trees usually grow in groves. This would be the iconic tree that graced the album cover, although oddly enough not on the front of album, which instead used a shot of the band standing in front of Death Valley’s Zabriskie Point (itself a famous location in rock music history thanks to the Pink Floyd/Jerry Garcia-based soundtrack for the eponymous 1970 Michelangelo Antonioni film).
