Short walk after bike ride

Pictures: A couple of cactus and a snake.

I’m going to guess that this is the Beavertail prickly pear. These had about stopped blooming in Havasu ( elevation of under thousand feet) but here at about four thousand feet they are still going strong!

I’m not sure which cactus this is, but it was about foot and half tall and a foot wide.

Exercise: Today I did 7 miles of the bicycle trail! For my age, kind of bicycle (not a trail bike) and my like of pushing hard exercise of late …. I did pretty dang good πŸ™‚  The trails here are pure bicycle trails too, not the four wheeler trails that I rode down in Quartzsite. One really need to a trailbike to ride these trails and one that is set up for this type riding and mine is certainly not, but I may do. I only fell off the bike twice ….. and for those concerned, I didn’t hit a cactus, Ha! I may have sprained a wrist a little bit and a couple scratches but other than that, I’m as good as new πŸ™‚

Night folks

    1. I agree, but there seems to be a few different kinds of barrel cactus and I don’t know which one it is. It was a nice healthy one πŸ™‚


  1. I so appreciate how being IN nature, one begins to connect so much deeper TO nature. That said, I most certainly would not have captured the snake picture because I would have been too busy running (peddling) in the opposite direction! Light and Love, Shona
