Cholla Cactus Garden. Joshua Tree NP preserves the convergence of two distinct desert ecosystems: the Mojave Desert and the Colorado Desert. As you drive southbound in the park through the Joshua Tree-covered Mojave desert landscape, you cross into the Colorado desert and fall below 3000 ft elevation where the vegetation can be so dense it seems to form natural gardens like this super-cool cholla cactus garden. I’m already thinking about where summer ‘20 is going to take me and revisiting some images I’ve been meaning to post from my ‘19 travels. #findyourpark #joshuatreenationalpark #joshuatree #chollacactus #chollacactusgarden #inmyelement #roadtrip #california #coloradodesert #mojavedesert #cactus #garden #wander #roadtrip #nationalparks #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #summer #hittheroad

The hawk flying solo above is a common sight in this corner of the country. It reminds me of my ever watchful Father and how he constantly watches after me.🙂 — Just a reminder that my print give away is going on right now. Enter, you never know, you may win!😀

Full moon rising in the high desert. If you think you are immune to having mystical experiences, come live in the high desert of Northern New Mexico for a few years. . . . #fullmooninpisces #simplysantafe #landofenchantment #chamisa #chollacactus #gratitude #reverence #sunset #moonrise #highdesert #endofsummer #photography #hiking #hikenewmexico

Turns out a fun side effect of big commission projects like this one, is that it makes for lots of good IG content! It also forces you to push your boundaries of what you know—this was my first-ever attempt at a cholla cactus, and it was a ton of fun to paint! #desert #desertlover #azdesert #desertart #arizonadesert #desertcactus #putacactusonit #desertgirl #desertinspired #southwest #southwestinspired #cacti #cactus #cactilove #cactuslover #watercolor #watercolorpainting #watercolorart #arizonaartist #azartist #artistsofinstagram #instaart #calledtobecreative #cholla #chollacactus #teddybearcholla

Thank you reader Emilio who doesn’t do social media and didn’t want his full name mentioned, BUT kindly emailed this picture perfect fuchsia cholla cactus bloom he found. If you look close there is a tiny ant carefully navigating around the sharp spines. Emilio says the ants are attracted to its extra floral nectaries which are like sugar water- something ants love. He should know, Emilio is a gardener who lives on a ranch covered with cholla. Nature is so mysterious... and beautiful. #chollacactus #cholla #cactusflower #santafeinbloom

Cholla Cactus Garden in Joshua Tree NP. Still one of the most unique national parks we’ve visited. Images unlike anywhere else. And a great, laid back vibe. • • • • • #nationalpark #joshuatree #findyourpark #joshuatreenationalpark #nps100 #nationalparks #nps #twentyninepalms #parks #nationalparkgeek #mobileapp #goparks #relaxednomad #travelguide #wilderness #visitcalifornia #app #cali #hiking #hike #chollacactus #chollacactusgarden

The mystery of the half-missing cholla cactus. Not sure if a bobcat, coyote, or would-be burglar ran into and absconded with half this small cholla behind my house. Not a piece of all the many stems that were broken off are anywhere nearby. I found a rabbit-eaten grass clump a few feet away, so my thinking is a bobcat probably tore after the rabbit and ended up covered in pieces of cholla. This is one way cholla propagate after all — regrowing where they dropped off an animal. But if it were a burglar or snoop, it’s also funny. You can’t remove a piece of this stuck to your jeans without heavy gloves or a stick to pry it off you. I’ve accidentally kicked one a time or two and can testify to how much fun it is. __ #newmexicotrue #travelnm #igsouthwest #nmnomad #ignewmexico #divine_deserts #westbysouthwest #nmcielos #beautiful_newmexico #newmexico #sky_marvels #skymarvels_star #highdesert #iphonexs #cholla #chollacactus

Most chollas (Cylindropuntia genus ) are found in northern Mexico and the Southwestern United States, but Cylindropuntia hystrix (also known as Patana ) is endemic to Cuba. Chollas tend to be a very widespread and abundant cactus, then again, Patana is an exception. It is known from only one location with an extent of occurrence of approximately 80 km2. ⁣ ⁣ Due to its restricted range and continued habitat degradation, the IUCN Red List has listed C. hystrix as Critically Endangered. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #IUCN ⁣⁣ #CSSG ⁣⁣ #RedList ⁣⁣ #Cylindropuntia ⁣⁣ #CylindropuntiaHystrix#ChollaCactus ⁣⁣ #Cholla ⁣⁣ #Cactus ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

#DYK Chollas are the only cactus with spines covered by a thin paper-like membrane. These papery epidermal sheaths protect the stem from overheating by reflecting intense sunlight, and give chollas a bright distinctive colour.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ There are more than 30 species of cholla cacti (Cylindropuntia genus ), all* native to northern Mexico and the southwest of the United States.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Most cholla species populations are stable (Least Concern according to the IUCN Red List ). Nevertheless, the deterioration in the quality of habitat due to overgrazing and agriculture is affecting some species and declining their populations such as Cylindropuntia santamaria (Vulnerable, Red List ), C. hystrix (Critically Endangered, Red List ), C. prolifera (Least Concern, Red List ), C. anteojoensis (Vulnerable, Red List ), C. californica (Least Concern, Red List ).⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #IUCN#CSSG#RedList#Cylindropuntia#ChollaCactus#Cholla#Cactus ⁣ ⁣ #DesertPlants

Some of the prickliest characters are only prickly because they're protecting their soft inner core. Some other prickly characters are just pricks. #chollacactus #chollacactusgarden #justgo #roadtrip #socal #joshuatreenationalpark #joshuatree #calidesert #findyourpark #national_park_photography #nationalparkservice #nationalparkgeek
