I loved the cactus! I could climb all over them and the spines didn't hurt my tough skin. This is a local favorite people here call the pitahaya. That's really the name of the fruit that comes from them, and we have two kinds, white fruit and red fruit.
I decided to climb a small cardon cactus by the side of the road. These are the biggest cactus in the world and can get to be 70 ft. high and live for 300 years! I said I am going to come visit this one every 50 years and see how it's doing. I figures I'll live that long, too! I think that Niki Needs to come check this out. Anyone want to come with her?
