Cholla Cactus Garden
Warning: do NOT do this. The little spiky cacti look so alien and cute! However, they will stick to you with a vengeance; do NOT pick them up or attempt to touch them.
The next day, we drove down Pinto Basin Road through the southern region of the park; where we stumbled upon the vast cholla cactus garden. At JTNP, we discovered the beauty of the desert and our newfound love for this environment.
