In the desert riparian area, the lovely, feathery, Tamarisk causes considerable disruption of the native plants. It's characteristic high water use squeezes out other plants. Eradication efforts have not been successful, since Tamarisk propagates by both seeds and cuttings.

The stumps are from previous eradicaton efforts.
Crossing puddles can be done without 4WD, if not too deep. Go slowly so you don't flood your engine.
