There was a flock of coots in this pond.
I could see this coot swimming underwater when he dived! Neat.
The temporary visitor center is nearby and another spring and boardwalk.
More fish swimming here, but they blend in so well you cannot see them in the photo.
What an incredible oasis in the desert!
The spring and streams feed a wide variety of small trees and plants that provide food for animals.
This strange looking plant growing on a mesquite tree is mistletoe! Much of the mistletoe we buy at Christmas, by the way, is collected from trees like this in Mexico and shipped to the U.S.!
