I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

Blooms at Grand Canyon

What a difference a week makes. I was out at Cape Royal yesterday giving a geology talk and noticed these Hedgehog cactus blooming. Wonder what will be blooming next week.

I am always amazed about how beautiful cactusses and succulents are when they flower specially cinsiddering thay they are plants associated with dry areas.

As you know, I love cacti and their flowers, even if I don't see many of the latter. The hedgehog cactus may be the one I "deflowered" accidentally last year; the flowers look similar...
