Lava Camp, headquarters for the bighorn and cougar study, as viewed from Fra Cristobal peak.
A beautiful and striking example of natural selection, a white lesser earless lizard (Holbrookia maculatum) sits atop white gypsum salts at White Sands National Monument, a few hours drive to the southwest of the ranch. Photo by Furman student Chris Jones.
A remote camera (gray box in center of photo) set along a trail in the bosque.
A canal off of the Rio Grande in the Bosque.
The bosque in the foreground with the north end of the Fra Cristobal range in the background.
A small roost of mexican free-tailed bats (Tadarida brasiliensis) in a crevice.
A more distant view of the crevice housing the freetailed bats in the previous slide. This crevice is in lava rock in a bluff above the bosque.
Prickly pear (Opuntia sp.)
Creosote (Larrea tridentata) flowers.
The Fra Cristobal range receiving a downpour.
Dense stands of grass growing up among the creosote on the ranch. This area has not been grazed for some time.
Approximately 20 m away from the last slide, grass cover is minimal in an area currently grazed by cattle.
