Day 92

What a glorious day!  Clear skies filled with brilliant sunshine and that darn wind.  It's not that cold that I couldn't be outside but the wind makes it just that bit too uncomfortable for me.  I eventually grew so restless I just had to get out even if only for a short walk.

This is one of the more peculiar looking saguaros I have ever seen.

I have never seen a cholla as densely packed and large as this one.
It was 5 feet tall.

Can you imagine falling into this?  A very painful experience indeed.

 All the plants around here are showing new growth from these recent rains. 
This ocotillo is a good example.

A sign near camp.
Yep, this area should provide me with some good exploring.

Tomorrow the winds are supposed to die away and next week be in the 70's.

Interesting survivors those plants, just some water and they start growing again.

Yes what a little water just can do. Great plants.

That sign must be new. No bullet holes. That's the most amazing saguaro I've ever seen.
