Great cacti in California. You asked me "Found a fish?" Yes we found it washed up dead. Good to study but not to eat.

Wow! The last picture really blows me down! Incredible and it's a happy trio!

Your first and third pic are of Euphorbia ammak. I have never seen one as big as that one. Quite impressive.

> Thanks VaishVijay.

> Diane b: I agree, lots of great cacti here. There are many we just don't see in Australia.

> Yoon See, thanks. I like those 3 too :)

> Candy: Did't think they are the same variety, coz the 3 in the last photo are small. Anyway, I have seen a few big ones. Will go thru my photos to see if they are worthwhile uploading. Thanks Candy, happy weekend.

They are definitely Ammak! The 3rd pic is just younger. That 1st pic must an old one! So awesome.

Cactus is a lovley plant! And you really show up some of them here! :) Especially I like much the last one- a wonderful cactus! :)

Many beautiful flowers below as well, much good to watch here since last time I visited your blog! :)

About my hike in the mountains: No it was not cold. At least not in the day.. At night it got colder, but there is a stove an it kept us warm, besides the sleeping bag.. :)
