Wednesday Explorers Club ~ desert plant field trip

This month we're going on a field trip to the Canyonlands area of Utah. While walking around Dead Horse Point in May, I found cacti beginning to bloom. Such dainty blooms atop prickly pads! But those spines are important adaptations. Learn more about cactus adaptations from this post about cactus spines (U of TX).
