Description Blackbrush fills the landscape around Windows, shown here at sunset in 1967. A few dried lepidium and grass stems rise between the plants, and the only sign of human disturbance is the winding asphalt road in the distance.

Description The landscape around Windows is dominated by blackbrush. The hummocks around the bases of each plant show the soil in the area has been moving due to wind, water, or perhaps trampling, but spotty biological soil crust shows the soil has not been changing too quickly. A few prostrate prickly pear are spread between the shrubs.
