Before I ran my errands yesterday morning, I stopped at the Palm Desert Visitor's Center. The early morning light was fantastic and I wanted to wander around and see what was there again. It was a beautiful, crisp, clear morning yesterday, although rain is forecast by the beginning of next week here. So, I'm glad I was able to take some photos yesterday. This little barrel cactus caught my eye. It even had some leaves stuck in its spines. Cactus Monday for January 11, 2010.
