Tex went to southern Colorado yesterday to find a quail or two. The quail were sparse but the cactus were not! Here are some pictures from the day.
Solid point on a cholla cactus.
OUCH! To jam your face in cactus . . . dedication or stupidity? If there had been a big, fat covey of blue quail, then maybe dedication. But this was all in the pursuit of a stinking mouse! I know I should “correct” him but it seemed the end result served that purpose . . .
. . . instead of a mouse appetizer he gets a face full of needles! Poor Tex!
The cholla is not an attractive plant.
Old fence post with barbed wire in sage.
Stepping on this will get your attention.
A nice corral. Cattle are popular business in the area.
Some areas in rural Colorado are not so prosperous.
Despite the pain, Tex had a great day on the cactus-festooned plains!
