Here are a few fotos of the flowers and critters I encountered on my recent camping adventure.
the bright red flowers are from the Coral bean plant which grows here in sonora, it has the most vivid red i have ever seen.
the mojave rattle snake was coiled up along the side of the road , he/she must have been cold - the altitude was around 6000 feet or so.
the horned toad was just laying in the middle of the paved road, i barely saw him there so I picked up the animal and moved it to the grass where it is less likely to get ran over.
the desert tortoise had the redest eyes i have ever noticed on an animal.
and finally, the agave flowers were blooming so i figured they were worth a pic or 2.
