First trip through Wonder Valley

Wonder Valley is just north of Joshua Tree National park and known for dilapidated cabins melting back into the desert and the hundreds of people, the retirees, the artists and writers, the nomads and squatters, who have reclaimed these mid-century homesteads. Wonder Valley came into existence because of the Small Tract Act (STA) of 1938. The act allowed for the disposal five-acre allotments of federal land in the American West and the greatest concentration of these tracts were released in what is now Wonder Valley. Many cabins have been transformed into artist studios and homes, leading to a kooky desolation with the desert still winning in many places.
