    Go here, pick up a map and discover one of the most unusual additions to the Joshua Tree scene in recent years: an experimental art community operating on a desert scale, installing contemporary conceptual pieces in scattered locations throughout the Mojave. One hears "the best and worst part of High Desert Test Sites is getting lost in the desert." This is true. And maps are presented with the disclaimer that much of the available information may be slightly (if not entirely) inaccurate, the point being sadly proven by noting GPS often provides inaccurate information even just to get to their home office. Of course part of this desert experience is the act of roaming. So go exploring: take food, take water, take an adventuresome spirit. Without a doubt you'll be moved by the time spent exploring with a creative eye. A wide range of artists have contributed to the ever-changing installations you'll find here, a collection that runs the full gamut of imagination. Crochet museum? Check. A desert performance of Hello Dolly! drawing on themes of the post apocalyptic? Check. A massive crater pool oasis built of 24-foot climbing walls? You got it. For those who want a truly one-of-a-kind desert experience, this is it.
