Desert Plant

White Sands, New Mexico

These plants are interesting. As the dune moves and the surface gets higher, the plants grow quickly in order to stay on the surface and survive. However, as the dune moves on and the sand gets lower the plant gets too tall and unstable. It eventually collapses and dies. How sad is that?
