Horse crippler cactus

(Echinocactus texensis) 02-APR-11
Different cacti species flourish on the high, rocky areas above the valleys at Gault. This one is near the lower gate, almost invisible until it blooms.

Prickly pear cactus

(Optunia engelmannii) 30-APR-11

The 'official' Texas State Plant is ubiquitous at Gault. This bloom was captured near the field house.

Eastern cottonwood

(Populus deltoides) 22-DEC-11

These are some of the largest trees in the valley, generally hugging the creek.
