Prickly Pear Cacti In Downtown Salida, Colorado (July 2006)

I was walking along F Street in Salida, a city of about 15,000 people in Chaffee County, Colorado, when I spotted a patch of prickly pear cacti along the sidewalk. Look at them!

I know some varieties of cacti grow naturally in the high desert areas of Colorado, but any time I see them, I make a big deal of it. Fortunately I had my camera with me to snap some photos.
