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!
