  Willow Well.
Willow Well on Wild Horse Mesa Road is one of many wells dug and maintained by cattle ranchers in the eastern Mojave. The "willow" is actually Desert Willow (Chilopsis linearis) a member of the tropical family Bignoniaceae (Catalpa Family). When this picture was taken, March 1998, the willows were still dormant and so they are the large gray shrubs around the tank. At an elevation of 1475 m, Willow Well is about the highest elevation I have observed the Desert Willow to grow. The boulders in the foreground are Precambrian gneiss.
