Attack of the Tumbleweeds

Witness what one commenter calls “a comically absurd amount of tumbleweeds” as they blow across a desert road. The gathering of spiny skeletal balls was captured on a phone cam by Tim Tower while he was driving in Owyhee County, Idaho in 2014. He writes, “This was just after a ‘snow’ plow made a path down the center of the road.” Suspenseful music completes the moment.

Why Do Tumbleweeds Tumble? Watch that next.

Then enjoy the 2017 Solar Eclipse from the shores of Palisades Reservoir, Idaho and more driving videos.
