Cholla and Ocotillo, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, California.

There is a place called the Cholla Garden in Joshua Tree National Park, I think this location is even better – almost as many cholla, but it is also full of blooming Ocotillo right now!

I photographed this last week as I was scouting for the past weekend’s workshop.  I forgot to take a photo of the workshop participants, but we had a great time!  It stopped raining right before the workshop began, and we had a nice variety of clouds and weather the rest of the day, followed with nice weather on Sunday.  One of the unexpected benefits of leading tours and workshops is the opportunity to meet really nice, very interesting people, and last weekend was no exception!

  1. Hey Ron

    This is great – I love the photo. Glad the workshop went well.

    Looks like it’s a bit warmer there than the 35below over in the park last week. 🙂

    Cheers

    Thanks guys! It was raining pretty good right before the workshop – thought it would be another wet one, but eased up just in time!

  4. Hi Ron,

    I haven’t done many workshops, but I’ve been thoroughly impressed with the people I’ve met. Spending 5 days teaching a group of people can be really rewarding.

    As for the image, is there anything better than the subtle colors of desert plants backlit? Mmmmmmmmmm.
