Managed to get to see the tree in 2011, together with a trip to Bodie aka ‘Red Hill Mining Town. Left my inflatable lemon from Popmart tour as an offering to the tree !!! Also been up One Tree Hill in Auckland in Nov 2006, where we bumped into Larry the night before the gig !!!

I totally remember seeing the inflatable lemon in the suitcase that's there! I did a solo desert sojourn in the summer of 2016 where I drove from Venice to 29 Palms and stayed at the Harmony Motel, then drove through the Mojave and stayed a night with artists at Tecopa then visited Zabriskie Point as the sun rose (so stunning!) and drove on and found the Joshua Tree. It was such a beautiful, humbling experience. Definitely a life goal and bucketlist item checked off for me. I left a message on a stone and left it under the Joshua Tree and wrote in the notebook too. Just a wonderful, beautiful experience. I'm desperate to head back out there again! I just found my pic of it and I'm going to try to post it now.

I went in June 2016. It was an incredible experience. I have two pieces of advice for those considering a visit: 1) Do your research before you go. The GPS coordinates are on the internet, you ju

Worse story ever- I lost my camera 2 days after visiting in June 2014!!!  My husband had graciously helped me find it and hiked out there with me- so I had a photographer the whole time, too!!!

These are hilarious! Love it! :) Sounds like a fun trip. I am a native Californian so been to JT many times growing up. I remember getting the album and driving thru JT park with my sister blaring it in the car. Saw a couple coyotes and beautiful sunset :) I am overdue for a visit!

So glad the lemon is still there. I wrote my email address on the side requesting folks send pictures of themselves with it !!!

Oh! I totally didn't see that written on it! I would have otherwise! Maybe it was still written there but I was little teary when I was at the JTree and couldn't see it. I also didn't rummage too much in the suitcase as there were old t-shirts from shows from the 80's in there that were just holding onto life and I didn't want to be the one responsible for them disintergrating any more. The plastic lemon was definitely a good token to leave behind! I couldn't bear parting with my U2 mug that travelled with me and should have prepared something else besides a stone. Oh well, next time I'll be better prepared! ;)

Did you manage to get any tickets to next years shows ? I've managed to bag a couple of RZ's for MSG, should be a good trip for us from the UK.

Ugh, no I'm in the Innocence group so I'm avoiding the temptation of Stub Hub and waiting out for tomorrow's presale to open for the LA show. I feel like it's just going to be a sham of an experience tho. It's been so hard getting tix to their previous shows! Fingers crossed tho!

Definitely on my bucket list. I would love to share this experience with other fans. I'm single and I feel like this would be a really special moment in my life to share. Since I don't have anybody to share it with, fans that it would really mean something to would be great to bond and share this experience with.

The Joshua Tree was pretty much my first record. It spoke to me then and has ever since. I remember sitting on the floor in front of my stereo and flipping that vinyl over and over again lost into the music and the lyrics. It was how I first heard about U2 which is my favorite band and has been ever since. This band and this record have changed my life. My only regret is not going sooner when it was still standing. But I'd love to go with those who would find such a pilgrimage as special as I would, something they'd never forget. ?
