Fauna & Flora, Grand Canyon: 8 reviews and 6 photos
Cryptobiotic soil abounds here in the desert. It takes a long time to recover if you even step on it. You will notice it on the ground that looks like it has been shaped by heavy rains or something. It often has raised areas and is dark in color. The cryptobiotic soils in the desert help control erosion. Keep to the trails, DO NOT cut switchbacks they are there for a reason.
