Tree cholla cactus

Cholla Cactus 9223

As you’ve been seeing, yellow proved to be a conspicuous color during our stay in the Trans-Pecos region of west Texas. Often the yellow came from the leaves of deciduous trees, but here that color stood out in the fruits of the cactus known as tree cholla (Cylindropuntia imbricata var. arborescens) on the grounds of old Fort Davis on November 20.
