  Indian Paintbrush
by rexvaughan

Favorite thing: There are many places along the almost deserted roads of this part of New Mexico where you can pull off the road or take a dirt byway to admire the scenery (and there is a lot of it). One thing not to be missed are the wildflowers which can sometimes be seen in profusion and at others in sparse numbers. This little Indian Paintbrush seemed all alone and would have been missed were it not for the brilliant color which beckons any flower lover. The seem to be able to thrive almost anywhere and are a bright spot in areas sometimes lacking in color. Look for them and their cousins.
