More photo information

Etched out by rain drops over many years, the two depressions in this rock create the eye sockets for Skull Rock.

It is a granite rock, in the shape of a skull, which seems to emerge from the ground surrounded by bushes. From this perspective photographed, it has eye sockets, a nose and a forehead. This popular tourist attraction is situated along the main East-West Road in Joshua Tree National Park and is very accessible from the road.

Rough to the touch, Skull Rock has only been sand and wind blasted by the elements in Joshua Tree National Park.
