Bill ShaneyfeltJoshua tree on the left (a kind of Yucca).

Saguaro in the center, a species of agave just to the right of it at the bottom.

Agaves and yuccas are not cacti, but are actually in the lily family.

Bill ShaneyfeltBarrel cacti look somewhat like Saguaros. However, they have pinkish, curved spines with a triangular cross section, while Saguaros have straight round spikes that are blackish to grayish.

So today we fixed seats and helmets and odds and ends. Had lunch a block away. That and  a store stop was all we did for exercise. Emma and I booked all our hotels for our week with Chris Susi from Scottsdale to El Paso. He hops on this next Saturday.
