The Cholla Garden. March 21, 2009

Posted by littlebangtheory in Art and Nature.

We hit the road in the pre-dawn dark and got down to a nice patch of cholla cacti before the sun came up.

It was an interesting place to watch that happen:

As the light flattened we turned our eyes toward the details.  Frau B. at work:

She’s difficult to see – left of center, in a red coat…

…probably taking close-ups of the flora.  Me too:

Then it was back to camp for breakfast!
