Spreading Prickly Pear

During late fall and early winter, the cacti in southern Arizona tend to shrivel up as they use their last remaining water before the winter precipitation starts. This year, the rains haven’t really arrived in force, and many of the cacti appear shrunken and desiccated. I took this panorama of a prickly pear cactus while on a trail run just outside Tucson in Pima Canyon.
