Erosion in Motion
Tiny gullies begin the constant erosion process behind a clump of Rubber Rabbitbrush near the Delicate Arch entrance road. The species name nauseosa refers to the smell given off when the leaves or flowers are crushed, described as pineapple-like by some and foul and rubbery by others. The common name refers to the rubber content in the sap -- in fact, rabbitbrush was tested as a source of high quality rubber during World War II.
