Samuelson’s Rocks, chances are good that most visitors to Joshua Tree National Park have never seen them, let alone even know they exist. Inspired by religion, politics, nature and solitude, John Samuelson, a homesteader, set about to use the ancient rocks as a canvas to express his “eternal verities of existence,” as he referred to them, along with his views on the Great Depression. His words are still quite visible today, looking much like they did when he carved them over 88 years ago.
