Desert Garden glowing in setting sun near Mobius arch

From the top of the picture where the Mobius arch is, it took me about 2 minutes to find this composition. What drew me down here was the desert garden strategically placed there by the gardener upstairs. ⁠ ⁠ The rabbit brush bushes were in their fall bloom season, fragrant and attractive unless perhaps you are an allergy sufferer. Luckily for me, they were just an aromatic bush that I was happy to be around. The upright desert needle grass as well some other flowering bushes could not have found a more sheltered location. This place perhaps gets very minimal rainfall but the snow in the winter is what keeps these plants coming back year after year.⁠ ⁠
