Life's Simple Pleasures

We haven't been doing any Jeeping lately, we sure miss it but with hot weather here to stay for a few months, we err on the side of caution and stick closer to home. The desert can be a very unforgiving place when temperatures soar to 100ยบ+ during the summer months. Although the Jeep is air conditioned, we always have to keep in mind the possibility of a mechanical breakdown in some of the remote places we explore. It wouldn't be a good thing to have to hike out under a blazing sun. We don't want our bleached bones to be found and then wind up as hanging on someone's den walls as souvenirs of the old west.  
Anyway, here are some photos we took of our "work in progress" cactus garden. We never know which cactus will be the next to surprise us with spectacular blooms.
