Brewster County Nature Drive

Yesterday I drove to Alpine in my newly repaired truck to return the short block engine core to Autozone. On the drive I could not believe my eyes. I have never seen it like this in the five years I have lived here. There were so many flowers blooming. Some I had never seen before. It was amazing.
Indian Paintbrush (Castilleja elmeri)
Nodding Thistle (Carduus nutans)

Tansy Aster (Machaeranthera tanacetifolia)

Still researching some of these.

What beautiful flowers the desert offers for us to see.

Congratulations on getting your truck fixed!

Thank you. It's disconcerting not having transportation as I'm sure you know.
