I don’t know if Dr. Suess was inspired by these particular trees in Joshua Tree National Park, California, but as I am driving along I often hear the voice of The Lorax —
“I speak for the trees for the trees have no tongues”
— and I think about how this place became a National Park and hear The Lorax again —
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
