We visited Anza Borrego to see the desert bloom yesterday, and lo and behold! We witnessed these adorable but painful creatures populating the dusty roadsides. They are such happy-to-know-ya cactus.

It’s best not to mess with him. He’s a lonely stranger wandering the desolate desert plains. And also hills. But definitely lonely.

p.s. These things are called Teddybear Cholla. Have you ever heard a cuter name in all creation? Here’s the link

The teddy-bear cholla is extremely flammable.
