    Initials carved in a Yucca Tree?

    The Yucca (Joshua) Tree doesn't have any normal bark or wood. The entire tree is fibrous:

    maybe they did it during the Yuccas semi-annual molting season.

    So, you have to be back the right time of year.

    That way when the feathers fall off again you can see the carvings.

    I believe they are called Yuccaglyphs..

    I imagine the Joshua Tree would have a different view about it's skin being "crap".

    There is no wood below the bark, it's all fiber all the way in. It gets denser further into the tree but there is nothing you would recognize as "wood". Joshua trees have no growth rings. You could scrape an area to where it might be flat enough to carve some stuff but that kind of damage usually ends up killing the tree.

    the article does not appear to be a joke.
    fantasy maybe but I'm sure everyone who lives where those trees exist
    should have caught that. especially prospectors... Correct ?

    I would think there must be a logical Explanation why he said Yucca Tree
    [ maybe misidentified Type of Tree ]
