The Destruction on Joshua Tree has been a last straw for me.  I've camped there for over 50 years, first as a child, then with my own family, and again, recently, in retirement.

These brigands also cut a new road with their 4x4s.  I'm sure you saw all the photos.

I lay it all at the feet of Riverside County, who can't seem to say NO to a development that is cheek by jowl to the southern edge of the monument.

This development features 800 homes, plus commercial properties to support it, and is, basically, a new town.

This is almost half way to Twenty Nine Palms, and it's surrounded, mostly, by wilderness, so, in order to sell it, the developers had to provide a LOT of the support and infrastructure for a new town out there.
