Turns out the fuzzy pink grass has a name: muhly grass, aka Muhlenbergia porteri. I asked the native plants of NM Facebook group for an ID and they basically told me I’d have to take an up-close photo. This is one of the results that led me to the ID. Oddly enough, some of the documentation I found later (once I knew its name) called the little pink tips “flowers.”
