Cactus 101

The Tuna, or Prickly Pear cactus is one of the reasons it is difficult to hike cross country on Bonaire. We look for gulleys or washed out areas when we are climbing the various hills. It is easier to pick our way through the rubble than to try to get past the thorns and spines of the typical Bonaire undergrowth.

Here are two different types of Candle Cactus, hairy and not so hairy.

This one was at a scenic overlook spot west of Rincon. Posted by Picasa
