Tucson Mountain Park

One thing about living in the desert is that there are cactus everywhere. Between the thorns and the rattlesnakes, you learn to watch where you step. For a few weeks each year, though, the cactus blooms and we begin to notice them for a different reason. A few weeks ago, we found this barrel cactus next to one of our favorite trails in Tucson Mountain Park. It was a great find and worth a few trips back until I got the shot I wanted.
