Bajada Trail

Bajada

Bajada nature trail. Colorado Desert
A bajada, or slope, at a mountain's base, is formed of eroded sand and gravel. More moisture is trapped and available to plants in a course, well-drained soil. Plant growth begins earlier in the warmer soil of this south-facing bajada, which allows a greater variety of plants to grow here than on the bajada across the valley.
