The ocotillo is an amazing plant found in Big Bend National Park in abundance. Usually it just looks like a tall clump of brow sticks, but when it rains, it turns green and can bloom with beautiful red flowers. I saw some amazing ocotillo patches during my trip and will show some more of those pictures soon.

Here is an image of an ocotillo framed against some brooding clouds and brief rainstorm.
