📸 - @jennybierma from Sunday’s, Desert Medicine Plant ID Hike. • • I can talk about Larrea tridentata commonly known as Creosote Bush for hours. It’s hard for me to take folks on a plant hike and trying to contain myself from getting full on plant nerd. I am so fascinated by Larrea tridentata that it shows in these pics of just how much I can geek out😍 • • Larrea tridentata is native to the Chihuahuan, Sonoran and Mojave Deserts. It’s a subspecies coming from South America. In South America the species there is L. divaricata a plant that is sought for its medicinal properties to those who live within the area. • • How L. tridentata species ended up traveling to the arid regions of the north is unknown but theories have it as by fecal deposits of migrating birds that consumed seeds of the plant. • • Another fascinating fact is that through the travels of these various ecosystems, there was a leap in the chromosomal evolution and the oldest recorded Larrea tridentata clonal ring is here in the Mojave, having been carbon dated back to over 11,700 years. In the Sonoran, a den of packrats had twigs from Larrea dating back to over 10,580 years ago. I only wish there was more information on Larrea divaricata, the original Larrea! • • I’m going to have another Creosote Bush class perhaps in the Low Desert and featuring a different herbal preparations with Larrea. This class will be more in-depth than I do on the plant hikes. So if you wanna learn more of this desert evergreen, keep posted. • • #larreatridentata #larreadivaricata #gobernadora #creosotebush #desertmedicineplantidhike #mojavedesert #plantidentification #coachellavalley #joshuatree #morongovalley #palmsprings #desertherbalism #herbalist #plantgeek #every_leaf_speaks #kingsclone
More surprising winter storm images from #deathvalleynationalpark this week! Only 0.3” of rain was recorded, but it transformed the park for the past few days. #nationalparkgeek #mountains #desertstorm #deathvalley #winter #clouds #storm #relaxing #timelapse #nikon #earthfocus #mojavedesert #rain #red or #brown #optoutside #☁️
Last week at @joshuatreenps. Please learn about our fragile ecosystem before you visit. How anyone can intentionally hurt these beautiful trees in any way is beyond me. . @goparks @nationalparkservice @parksproject @visitcalifornia . #joshuatree #joshuatreenationalpark #findyourpark #packitinpackitout #visitcalifornia #california #mojavedesert #benice #trumpshutdown
Textures of Mountains and Sand . Sand dunes are a joy for me. The conditions that make them, namely a wind-borne supply of sand that is equal to or greater than the sand that escape in those same winds, are strange to ponder. Spurred by the climate, geology, and geography, particles pile up hundreds of feet tall. Sometimes they might end abruptly as if contained by an invisible force field. Or they taper off slowly in decreasing ripples before vanishing into the desert lands. These dunes are miles from anywhere, and the silence, aside from some close visits of military jets, was sublime. In these you can tell that the sand mountains are pretty stable in this spot, allowing plants to take hold in the fine grains. A tall dune summit, well over 100 feet above the surrounding ground, stands guard at a gap in the dark mountains providing a window to a broad valley beyond. At this point in the day the sun was low and a weak weather system was spawning snow in nearby summits and cool blue clouds in the sky above. Even without direct sunlight, the dunes reveal plenty of texture.

Mohavea confertiflora or the #ghostflower is one of the most attractive wildflowers of the Mojave and Sonoran deserts, and is relatively widespread, though not so common. They bloom in JTNP .. Habitat loss not only deprives species of their natural home, but also destabilises the deserts ecosystems 🌵🌸.. .

First light
Volunteers are working to keep Joshua Tree National Park open. And despite reports of graffiti, vandals cutting down joshua trees, and more, they’re doing their best to stop the destruction. It baffles me how some humans think that Mother Nature belongs to them 💔 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Joshua Tree is such a magical place, and one close to my heart as you know. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s also a very vulnerable landscape, and with the current government shutdown and a lack of supervision in the park, those with an absence of respect have been taking advantage of it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you do go to Joshua Tree National Park during this time, please: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Take everything you bring in with you back out. Including garbage. Don’t put it in the trash bins. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’re going just for a few hours, use the restroom before you enter. Volunteers are the ones taking trash out of the park and cleaning the bathrooms. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do not go off trail. Do not take vehicles off roads. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don’t climb onto the fragile Joshua Trees. A photo is not worth permanent damage to nature. Not in Joshua Tree, not anywhere. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Respect this gorgeous place. Please. 🙏🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Salvaged this ‘crown of thorns’ plant from a demo and it looks like it’s liking the desert 🌸 these plants are drought tolerant, require little maintenance and give great flower displays when placed in full sun ☀️
We’ve added another fresh batch of trees to our Games library! See what’s new on the #SpeedTree blog! (Pictured here is the #YuccaPalm , one also referred to as the Joshua Tree, found only in the #MojaveDesert )⠀ ⠀ https://buff.ly/2stm4YD⠀

“A tamed woman will never leave her mark in the world.” -robert m drake 📸 me and my tripod .. More on Pioneertown tomorrow...
Pioneertown. 125 miles outside of Los Angeles. Founded in 1946 by a group of Hollywood legends like Roy Rogers and Gene Autry; built as a real working movie set and included this 20 room motel for cast and crew to stay in while in town. .. In 2014 Matt and Mike French, brothers from Portland bought the @pioneertownmotel and have done a hell of a job renovating and welcoming guests. (📸 me and my tripod) .. #sponsored
