Next Stop

Our next stop today was Monahans State Park. It seems we almost always make an overnight stop here. And I just love the park.

The storm was letting up so we hit the road to Monahans SP!
Lyreleaf Greeneyes (Berlandiera lyrata) and Bindweed (Convolvulus equitans) welcomed me at a rest stop. There were not actually much at the rest stop because they had mowed. However, I crossed the service road to get these.

The sand is awesome!
I never tire of seeing the ripples in the sand!
Indeed, these are the traffic patterns that make me wonder who had been here.
Here was a cool plant that was blooming, Gilia Beardtongue (Penstemon ambiguus).
And the Gilia Beardtongue is a bush! In addition, it was a treat for me because I had never seen it blooming. At least I don’t remember it. LOL

My signal is pretty slow tonight so this will be all. I did see lots of other plants like the Sensitivebriar (Mimosa nuttallii), Hopi Tea Greenthread (Thelesperma megapotamicum), Yellow Woollywhite (Hymenopappus flavescens), and the Spectacle Pod (Dimorphocarpa wislizeni) to mention a few. Perhaps on the return trip, I can share a few more of those with you.

Keep looking!

The more you know, the more you see and the more you see, the more you know.
