Three Rivers Petroglyph Site is located in the Tularosa Basin about five miles from the town (used here very loosely) of Three Rivers. From the highest point on the trail you can get an expansive view of the basin as it runs north-south. The desert grasses, dormant in the winter, light up with the setting sun and I tried capturing that in this photograph with limited success. The plant life in the desert is really remarkable in its efficiency. It’s easy to grow and thrive in areas with excess moisture. The desert, however, is much harsher and life therein must be extremely well-adapted to survive. That’s awesome.
