Find Me On:
I should correct myself, the Joshua Tree is not on the album cover (that would be Zabriskie Point in Death Valley). Joshua Tree was in the gatefold photo.
If you are referring to THE Joshua Tree on the album cover, it fell back in 2000 and it was no where near JT national park (a common mistake). It was out in the middle of the Mojave Desert. Some U2 fans found it a while back with the help of a Park Ranger and the “secret” directions were shared amongst the U2 fan community. I did get to see it 1999 before it fell.
