Big Bend National Park

Despite a tendency to spiny plants, barren ground, and a variety of reptiles, each desert is distinctive. To recognize the Chihuahuan, shift focus from the broad horizon to the "indicator plants" that characterize this particular landscape.

The agave lechuguilla grows only in the Chihuahuan Desert. Bladed like a cluster of daggers, lechuguilla thrives in gravelly soil with less than ten inches of precipitation a year. Look for this needle-tipped plant along the short trail.
