Sometimes when I’m hiking, I have this irrational fear I’ll stumble off the trail into a Cholla or a Prickly Pear.  This cactus is neither of those, but I don’t want to stumble off the trail into it, either.  I don’t want to stumble off the trail into any cactus. If I’m stumbling on the trail, I probably shouldn’t be there, right?   But, despite my irrational fears of being mercilessly stung by their barbs, they can be (a recent conclusion I’ve come to) stunningly beautiful.  Get close enough.  You’ll see.
