Ocotillo Blooms

Blooming ocotillo (pronounced o-co-tee-yo), whose spiney branches are 10 to 15 feet long. The plants usually look dead until rain falls when green leaves burst out of the wood tipped with bright red flowers. This plant was growing in abundance along the trail toward The Slot (along Borrego Mtn. Wash).
