Description This springtime scene in the Garden of Eden hows some plants moving into the old Windows Trail roadway, now used solely for hiking. Blackbrush and other foreground shrubs are large and shaggy, showing signs of recovery from past grazing. Juniper and other shrubs on the rocky toeslopes of the stone spires have died back since 1970, likely due to drought.
