Echinocereus mojavensis

This photograph of Echinocereus mojavensis is taken not far from Utah-Nevada border, close to Grand Basin national park. The cacti here are not that common as in Arizona, but definitely present and not too difficult to find. This volcanic rock outcrop is hosting several large multi-headed Echinocereus mojavensis specimen, along with different kinds of desert brush. In the winter this area sees below freezing temperatures and snow, and summers are more mild than down south.
