Bark after fire
Ponderosa Pines are fire resistant trees. Often when the lower trunk looks charred and dead, the crown is alive and green.
Nature's remarkable recovery from fire provides a brilliant display of wildflowers.
The colors will change throughout the summer.
And I found more New Mexico Locust in bloom. So, because there weren’t any visitors around I ate a flower.
New Mexico Locust
Tastes like peas. Well it is from the legume, or pea, family.
