O’Grady Canyon widens at the meeting with Little Boulder Canyon.

Prickly Pear cactus is in foreground. In season these produce magnificent flowers, see below.

East by Southeast a low ridge forms the west side of the canyons above which Weaver’s Needle looms. “Weavers Needle has played a significant role in the stories of the Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine. The Needle’s shadow reportedly indicates the location of a rich vein of gold, and many treasure hunters have searched for it. The hunt for gold around Weavers Needle has been pursued by hundreds (possibly thousands) of people. Weavers Needle has a large split in the side that makes it look like it has two tops, not one. This can only be viewed from the side.” — wikipedia

To the far left is Palamino Mountain.

  1. I’d never heard of a prickly pear with pink flowers. When I looked a little further, sure enough: there are western species I’ve never heard of, and this clearly is one. I’m so used to ours, that bloom yellow or orange, the pink was a real surprise.
