Cholla~Cactus Monday 072610


Our desert and local mountains are covered with cholla like this. I've been wearing shorts lately because it is so darn hot, but I always wear knee high socks with them. Cacti like this is one reason for that! I mean, who wants to run into this while hiking? Cactus Monday for July 26, 2010.

Really interesting growth on this one. Yes, these plants do demand super protection from their bite.

Whoa! The thought of knee high socks in this heat, yikes!!! LOL! The cholla is such an unusual cactus to us out east (Florida), but we got to see them when we visited Palm Springs and surounding areas a few years ago...these and the Joshua Trees are just enthralling to me!!! Be careful out there!!! :)
HCM!

Nice shot! I went to Phoenix to visit my sister and brought home a chunk of this last September. It is growing. Yeah! I have a few kinds of cholla!
