The magic carpet of scorpion weed in Mojave Desert, Utah
Every few years for a few short weeks, this remote section of desert is transformed into a magic carpet of purple. But its beauty is best appreciated in a photo- locals talk of the plants giving off a foul smell like human body odour. Worse still, it’s not called Scorpion Weed for nothing - pick this desert blossom up and you’ll get a very nasty rash.
