Truck window drive-by photography

All of the following were taken from the truck passenger seat as we drove home last Wednesday from Las Cruces to Elephant Butte. It was our last trip to Cruces so I was seeing everything with fresh eyes and feeling a bit sentimental, as it were.

Creosote is commonly known as Greasewood, but Creosote sounds much nicer. Creosote tends to grow with spaces between each plant and that's a survival mechanism. Each plant puts out a toxin that the other creosotes don't like, so each guy can use the water and soil around himself for his own survival.
