This very happy fella resides at the North Las Vegas Airport. I saw him when I arrived, had to get this photo via the iPhone. This cactus is not native to the High Desert, it grows in the Sonoran Desert around Phoenix, and I think in one other desert here. They are like people, aren’t they? All different yet the same in some ways. Saguaro Cactus.
This California Barrel Cactus has a wonderful defense system, you don’t dare touch it! This is an iPhone photo from a short walk this afternoon in my neighborhood. Another sunny, warm, and blue sky day.😎
Before heading home from Calico Basin today, I spotted this Buckhorn Cholla at the edge of the parking area near my truck. It’s a great looking plant, I’ve seen some very large plants like this one in my desert travels. These spines are deadly sharp, you don’t dare touch this plant!
This cacti is common in southern Nevada, it’s actually all over the Mojave Desert. The bottom photo is framed up on my kitchen wall.
