The brittle prickly pear is likely the most widespread cactus in North America. It's range includes the five western Canadian provinces, all of the western American states, and continues south well into Mexico. Because it can be found close to the Arctic Circle, it is also the most northerly cactus in North America. This one was found in flower growing near the Pawnee Buttes in northeastern Colorado.
