Desert Spoon on Nature\'s Table
This is another cool desert plant called the
Desert Spoon or Sotol. I found it growing above 5,000
feet, right here outside Payson, AZ. It's symetry is
amazing, and it usually grows on south-facing
cliff-sides where there's plenty of sun. This one
was growing beneath a tower of granite in the
"The Boulders" area of central Arizona. (May 5, 2008)

I hope it was as good for you as it was for me! :)

the kind words. I'm really hoping that
winter will loosen its grip completely
within a few more weeks. Best regards!!

Never seen granite so pink. Is it the time of the day that makes it that color, or may be when it's wet?
An incredible shot.

Thanks! Sandstone appears brighter when wet
in the Sedona area. Granite depends on
composition, time of day and how much I
messed around with it in the photo editor.

Thanks again for the kind words, and best of
luck on your outdoor endeavers!
