Local man learns you can’t just go and build a giant concrete tower inside Joshua Tree National Park


One of things that makes Joshua Tree National Park so beautiful is the lack of people, for the most part, destroying the majestic natural landscape by say constructing giant concrete towers without permission.

Din Kossova, who has lived in the Coachella Valley for 40 years, learned this lesson the hard way recently.

Kossova, according to the Desert Sun, built a tower – that he dedicated to President Woodrow Wilson – inside of Joshua Tree in 2012. This week, a judge fined him 9 grand for the tower – for which most of that money will go to remove the damn thing.

“I built this without knowing it was in a park,” Kossova told the newspaper. “I thought it was nobody’s land.”
