Ute Canyon Cactus
The Grand Junction (CO) Sentinel goes trekking for cactus.
Ute Canyon is one of four main canyons within Colorado National Monument. It’s not the longest, nor does it contain the most spectacular rock formations…
Well, that’s not promising. What else are you offereing?
Last year at this time, I found… Ruby Red Claret Cup Cactus and common pink prickly pear preparing to pop.
We’re a little behind this year. Nonetheless, I spied a handful of colorful wildflowers already in bloom… The cactus are just beginning to bud, so you’ll have to wait a while to photograph them.
