Cholla "Teddy Bear" Cactus

You must walk very carefully on the Cholla Gardens Trail at Joshua Tree National Park.  Teddy bear cholla cacti are far from cuddly!  The cacti are so spiny and sticky that small animals use them for defense around their burrows.

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.
