Ocotillo buds, Imperial County, CA

Newer Older

Taken in the Southeastern portion of California, not far from Arizona. That's Interstate 8 in the mid-background. If I remember the location correctly, this is near a small town named Ocotillo.

Note the shadow of the ocotillo, on the ground. This particular ocotillo was perhaps 6 yds/meters tall. To see an entire plant (not the same one, but similar, and not far away) see here.

Much more dramatic at the larger sizes.

    It looks like you'll be having a colorful spring this year. This reminds me of our trip out west about eight years ago.
