Fishhook


Jim at the Palm Springs Desert Sun spends a day in the desert to find the local Mojave Fishhook Cactus. And finds one!

With the discovery of this one, known to botanists as Sclerocactus polyancistrus, my list was complete. I had found and photographed every kind of cactus known to exist in the deserts of California….

(T)his species is rarely abundant even in favored habitat…. The other factor making it difficult to find a Mojave fishhook is that each specimen looks very much like a browsed clump of bunch grass.

Sounds like Jim has been busy finding cactus in California.
