Wind Drift

As the plants grow in the wet spring, the blowing wind piles the sand as it slows in the plant's branches. The plant, in this case Russian thistle or tumbleweed, grows more to stay above the sand. As the years pass and the plant or its descendants, grows it starts to build a hill out of the sand. The desert is full of endless forms and colors.
