Can feel the fuzzy spines along the rows of these cacti?
We took this photo recently while bicycling around the Puerto Los Cabos marina in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico. We veered off onto a sandy path winding through marsh-type bushes and huge palm trees and accidentally entered the new Wirikuta Desert Botanical Garden.
Cacti galore at the Wirikuta Desert Botanical Garden
The garden is home to more than 1 million plants, including over 1,500 varieties of desert plants from around the world.
Since we had popped in through the back way, we thought we should skedaddle – but couldn’t resist taking a few photos first.
