I was dancing with the chollas last night in Joshua Tree.

If you step on their feet, they will definitely let you know it. Those weird streaks in the sky are actually shadows being cast by clouds directly over my head. Another photographer there told me the scientific name for them, but...I think that's when a spine went through my shoe.

I was there a few years ago and stepped off the path for a photo or two and had stickers all over my shoes. Those things are quite nasty, although photogenic. And as you probably know or found it, if you just brush one of those things the entire clump of stickers breaks off and sticks to your clothes.

Glad to see you made it back all in one piece. Great shot.
