Surely a penstemon

Penstemon buckleyi Flowers9292

When I was at Monahans Sandhills State Park on the overcast and windy afternoon of April 12th, I saw this flower spike that I assumed must be some sort of penstemon. Wildflower guides have led me to believe it’s Penstemon buckleyi, called, not surprisingly, Buckley‘s penstemon.
