Re: Mmmmmmmh,

No, it would not be amusing. Once I rubbed against one of these and I was pulling the little devils from my cloths for two years.

Ciao Roberto,

Re: Sweet shot!

Thank you very much, CJ. Be ready for very hot temps during the summer months in Joshua Tree. Winter and early spring are the best times for a visit.
Thanks again,
Marc

Awesome Shot!

You captured some great lighting. I believe that's a Silver Cholla (Cylindropuntia echinocarpa). Better to stay away from these cacti. Chollas have a nasty bite.

Re: Awesome Shot!

Wow, I'm impressed by your knowledge of different kinds of cacti, including the scientific name. Yes, they are pretty nasty. I want to tell you something you may not believe. This guy is no more than a foot high. I got on the ground to take this shot.
Thanks for the visit, Adam,
Marc

Ahhhhhhhhh yes,

be careful with these. I remember only too well how mean they are. ArenĀ“t they called "jumping cholla" because they always jump on you when you pass by .......? :-) Michael

Re: Ahhhhhhhhh yes,

Hey Michael, very funny, so they jump on you as you pass by? You know something, I think you are right, the little devils do jump on you. Well, after my little run-in with this guy's bigger cousin, I tread very carefully.
Cheers,
Marc

Re: Beautiful!!!

Oh, yeah, these guys are very nasty. I am not afraid of the big needles, they have these tiny thorns that are barely visible and penetrate into your skin through three layers of clothing.

Thank you for the visit, Eric.
Cheers, Marc
