Water tank near the town of Chaparral, New Mexico...there's no chaparral there.
From the TV show, High Chaparral...there's no chaparral there either.
Below is a list of selected references for you if you would like to do further research on the chaparral. If you find this resource helpful, we would really appreciate it if you would consider becoming a member of the California Chaparral Institute to help support our work. Membership information can be found on the our Membership page. THANKS!
