Going from the wide view to a close up in Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument, NM. There were a few trees and plants and I loved the Fallugia which is known by the common names Apache plume.
Tiny, deeply cleft leaves are topped by a profusion of exotic seed heads, "Apache Plumes". These rather thick shrubs appear unkempt, but in full flower their white petals are attractive against the dark foliage. Fruit clusters with feathery, purplish tails said to resemble Apache headdress.
