The mystery plant in the photograph below has been identified! A leggy ocotillo is pictured above as well.
Off the beaten path of Southern California's renown network of asphalt highways lay countless photographic opportunities. The tall lonesome ocotillo in the center of this frame was found north of Palm Springs. At 95 degrees, full sun, and no water in sight, the ocotillo faired well. The plant even blossomed with vibrant orange flowers.
