Hymenothrix wrightii

There were a couple of patches of this plant near the Aguirre Springs campground. This plant was photographed next to the gate and the cattle guard. I had a hard time identifying this plant, I scratched through names in my journal two times before I finally found out what it really was! It can be very hard to identify flowers by just looking at photographs. I finally found it on this very helpful website by the botanists at Western New Mexico University: Southern New Mexico Wildflowers
