I'm down at the bottom of Keystone Canyon now and almost back home for the day

Paper-bag bush (aka salazaria mexicana, bladder sage) growing near my tent
A lot of bees are buzzing around the flowers on this neato twiggy bush with almost no leaves. A tiny hummingbird flew up to it as well, but didn't linger, perhaps unable to get any nectar from the flowers.
Apparently the bark of this plant is photosynthetic.
