This trail highlights the ecology of Chihuahuan desert. The spring itself was unremarkable except for its existence in this arid land. The twin mountain peaks in the distant provided the moniker for this region. Above, lechuguilla plants – multiple pointed green leaves, with a solitary tall stalk, prickly pear cactus and below, the octotillo plants (taller plants with green wiggly stems) are all ubiquitous in Chihuahuan desert.
