Cholla Cactus
Silver Cholla Cactus (Opuntia echinocarpa) covered with snow.
Pine Creek area of Red Rocks, Nevada. December 2008.

These cacti are as abundant in Red Rocks as the Buckhorn Chollas. They are also sometimes called Golden Chollas. It all depends on the color of their spines.
Cholla cacti bloom in Red Rocks in early June.
