Ice on cholla~Nature Notes~032212
I don't often see ice on cholla, so when I drove up the road next to Deep Canyon last Sunday, I was thrilled to see quite a few cholla with ice on them. I pulled off at one turnout and hobbled over to this one to take a closer look. Isn't that interesting? It looks like little, white cotton balls! This storm dropped the most snow on our local mountains that I've seen in a couple of years and it is welcomed. Nature Notes for 032212.
