Twins - White Sands Missile Range near Aguirre Springs, New Mexico
Here are a couple of blossoming Yucca plants growing along the base of
the Organ Mountains in Southern New Mexico along Hwy. 70.
I was driving westward across the White Sands Missile Range toward the
Springs campground when I noticed that the Yucca plants were in
full bloom for as far as the eyes could see. Now normally, for a guy that
grows up in the desert, Yucca plants are no big deal. But when these tall
towering plants burst into their white crowns of flowers, it's hard not
to take a few moments to catch and preserve the memory in photos.
