Dense Tasajillo Cactus 0632

Also at McKinney Falls State Park on March 1, 2013, I found this densely branching tasajillo cactus, Cylindropuntia leptocaulis. The combination of red and green has led some people to call this a Christmas cactus, while the slenderness of the joints has led others to call it a pencil cactus.
