Teddybear Cholla Cactus Garden
The Cholla Cactus Garden is located in the Pinto Basin in Southern California's Joshua Tree National Park. These teddybear chollas are quite beautful to see in person, but beware: I bumped into one of them and pieces broke off as my arm came into contact with the hooked needles causing a suprising amount of pain! Good thing I happened to have a pair of pliers on me to pull them out!
