These are photos from over a week ago. It's hard to believe it's gotten too hot to hike already.
But when the cactus blooms at Halpata Tastanaki Preserve, you can be sure it's HOT!
They sure have beautiful blooms though.
And I managed to get a few next to the fence to join Tex today!
I'm not sure what this plant is but the flowers look like crepe paper.
They are so unusual!
I'm joining Tex for Good Fences!
