On our hike to the Marshal South Home, I squatted down to take the photo above. We were on a trail, so I didn’t think to look behind me.
I ended up sitting in this cholla cactus (the one in the middle at the bottom of the photo). Brian came to the rescue and pulled my pants away from my skin which removed most of the prickers from my butt. He was then able to remove the prickers from the pants. Some still remained in my skin, so I had to bare my bottom on the trail so he could get the rest.
Lesson learned, look before you squat to take a photo – especially in the desert.
Dinner Last Night:
A month ago I posted my recipe for Veggie Soba Noodles. Well, I last night I was in the mood for soba noodles, but this time I used the sauce from this Sesame Soba Noodle Salad recipe and added bok choy and red peppers. It was good, but not as good as my other recipe.
