Mesquite Flat

Detailed Description


Creosote bush (Larrea tridentata), white bursage (Ambrosia dumosa), and desert holly (Atriplex hymenelytra) are three of the few plants well adapted to grow on the alluvial fan along Highway 267 north of Beatty Junction (USDA, [2010d,e,f]). The badlands in the midground are eroded Pliocene sediments. The Funeral Mountains are in the distance. To see an aerial view of this area, click here.
