Stick ’em Up!

Prickly Pear Cactus

Prickly Pear Cactus

This cactus seems to have an eerily human resemblance!

One of the thousands of cactus I saw in the Tuscon unit of  Saguaro National Park, just west of Tucson, Arizona.

About Bo Mackison

I’m a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place – a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I’d love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It’s my gift to you.
