|I'd love to see these all blooming at the same time
|Carried away with cairns (the one at right looks like Paul Revere)
|Southeast side of Tortugas Mountain
|Boulders on the slope
|Trail through the high desert
|Tallest yucca is sending up a flower stalk
|Here it is
|On the trail through a small yucca forest
|Don't know why so many yuccas grow here
|The long view
|South of the mountain
|Desert behind Tortugas
|Pyrrhuloxia (aka "Desert Cardinal")
|This Pyrrhuloxia (Cardinalis sinuatus) reminds me of Marty Feldman
|What's this creeping through the desert?
|Take this road
|What's up there?
|Torrey Yucca in bloom behind the mountain
|Torrey Yucca (Yucca torreyi)
|Torrey Yucca in bloom
|There's a patient dog waiting in this photo
|Guess I like this yucca
|I see what I'm doing here . . .
|. . . but what am I doing here?
