More than a U2 album: Joshua Tree National Park

17:30 AEST Sat Jun 1 2013
The first album Jules ever bought was U2's The Joshua Tree. Bono chose the title after he'd been to the Joshua Tree National Park, two-and-a-half hours from Los Angeles, and connected with the Mormon legend that the tree looked like Joshua praying. They could see the Old Testament prophet with outstretched arms beckoning believers to the Promised Land.
