Spring and summer rains inspire the creosotebush's yellow blooms, often filling entire canyons with the pleasing, though somewhat medicinal odor of this ubiquitous desert shrub ( Larrea tridentata). This photo was taken in early spring at the Persimmon Gap entry station to Big Bend National Park. Text and photo by Pete Szilagyi.
