Legends Of The National Parks: Joshua Tree's Yucca Man By Derek Anderson, Joel Anderson, 2022
- Legends Of The National Parks: Joshua Tree's Yucca Man
For the residents of southern California, the infamous Yucca Man is almost as well known as Bigfoot is to the Pacific Northwesterners. Yucca Man is tall, a looming 8ft beast, covered in stringy, unkempt hair. And with a lumbering, shuffling gait, this fellow could easily be a cousin or distant relative of Bigfoot! Yucca Man has been spotted all across southern California, from the suburbs of Lancaster to the runways of Edwards Air Force Base. However, the most recent Yucca Man sightings have occurred in Joshua Tree National Park. Inspired by the frequent stories of Yucca Man encounters, Anderson Design Group artists hand-rendered a vintage poster illustration of the monster himself, drawing from our study of eyewitness reports of the beast. Available as a poster, print, canvas, metal sign, mini-canvas, notecard, or postcard, this rendition would look excellent on any wall or make a great gift for the cryptozoologist in your family.
