These are multiple shots of the mesquite bosque at the Desert National Wildlife Refuge in Clark County, Nevada, USA. A bosque is a woodland, applied to a gallery forest of the desert.
Hard surface and rough dirt trails provide access to the entire perimeter of this extensive woodland. Travel through the interior of the bosque is not possible due to the cactus sharp thorns of the mesquite.
The bosque is immediately north of the visitor center, in easy walking distance. Corn Creek is nearby, it is possible this grove exists because of the unusually high water table at this location in the DNR.
