Huge Ponderosa pines against...
Huge Ponderosa pines against a sandstone wall. The Ponderosas are about 100 feet in height, and are an unexpected site in the middle of a desert!

Just a little bit of shade and you get Ponderosa in the middle of the desert!

Yes, a really rare site over there. These are the only such Ponderosas I know of in miles. Since the slickrock bowl is north facing and cresent shaped, the place almost never sees the sun. There is a minor drainage that dumps enough water off the cliffs and directly on to the trees from above that allows them to grow. Only a few feet away and in the sun is barren (but beautiful) desert!
