Somehow, the simplest of plants always seems like a magical spectacle when walking in the desert. Across the street from 'our' hotel in Carson City there is a small desert walk, set up on the hospital grounds. Its a must for us each morning before our busy days begin.
This year I was fascinated by the 'fluffy' plants that we spotted as we walked. Unfortunately there are no plant names showing at their base, so we could only enjoy them in their nameless state.
The surprises of the desert landscape never ever cease to amaze me.
"I have always loved the desert. One sits down on a desert sand dune, sees nothing, hears nothing. Yet through the silence something throbs and gleams." - Antoine De Saint-Exupery - The Little Prince
