Santa Elena Canyon November Morning 2

Santa Elena Canyon, Big Bend National Park

With Santa Elena Canyon in the distance, an Ocotillo rises from the Chihuahuan Desert on a cool November morning. Plants in this remote region of Texas are tough, and this spiney monster can survive all ranges of moisture and temperature. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
