Great pics tiffpix!

Apparently, the fruit of the prickly pear cactus is edible.
You should have tried it!

I like the rock that looks like growth rings on a tree. Very cool stuff!

Thanks Jeff. Other tour members kept telling me it would turn into a flower, so I didn't know what it was. I'll try it next time. :-)

Correction - FP is a dam fine photographer! :p (Just ask him!)

Oh, BTW - nice fedora dude!
Is that a recent addition to your wardrobe? I don't recall you wearing it when you came north this summer.

Thanks for the explanation on the white ring-around-the-tub line. I was wondering.

The hat is something I bought in Vegas to keep the broiling sun off my head. It helped a ton, especially on those 100+ degree days with no cloud in sight.

It's not my usual setup. I didn't bring my belt-mounted holster with me on this trip, which I ended up regretting a lot. But we did bring that blue camera backpack so we could fit more clothes in our carry-on luggage and not have to check any extra luggage. I was carrying both of our gear, so the backpack made sense. But I far prefer the holster, especially in heat like that.

(each small pouch at my belt contains a Limited lens :D )
