A Court in Germany ordered that access to certain items in the Project Gutenberg collection are blocked from Germany. Some places burst forth in a rainbow of colors, while other areas become carpets of solid gold or purple. Many perennial desert flowers bloom every year, even in poor years for wildflowers.

For more information about the German court case, and the reason for blocking all of Germany rather than single items, visit PGLAF's information page about the German lawsuit. All riders under the age of 18 years of age must wear a bicycle helmet. Popular desert plants include the Palo Verde tree, the Queen Victoria agave, the golden poppy, and the Mexican thread grass.
