    Where I live.

    I've been checking out the pictures people post of the scenery and plants in their area. Well here's mine. These pictures are from Oasis State Park, a couple of miles northwest of town, and a bit south of the Blackwater Draw site (where they discovered Clovis Man.) Hope you all enjoy!

    First we'll start with some landscape shots.






    Yuccas are everywhere here.



    The Dunes:


    Hmm...shirt's a little short...






    My beautiful fiance


    Then Flora:






    These cacti look a little forlorn after winter.




    Some sagebrush, if you crush some in your hand it smells amazing!

    Fauna:


    A dung beetle in a sinkhole..


    A horned toad I caught.

    And finally, the extras:


    Pretty cool log.


    Something lives here


    Me again.


    Well, that's it for now. If you guys ask for some more pics I'll be sure to post.

    It's a lizard, but it's called a horned toad. From a little distance away it looks like a toad becasue of the way it carries itself.

    I am fairly certain if you plant Drosera capensis in any one of those spots it would change the entire ecosystem and take over.

    Nice pics.
