It was gusty today and with that comes tumbleweed. I'll be sitting staring out into the desert and see sometimes 3 or 4 tumbleweeds go tumbling past.
What surprises me is that when I go walking in the desert I never see them. I would have thought that when the wind isn't blowing they'd just be sitting there on the ground waiting for the wind to pick up. Unfortunately that's not the case. They appear to have gone into hiding.
So the big question is: Where do tumbleweeds hide when there's no wind? And who or what are they hiding from?
