Pulpit Rock Plants

I enjoyed seeing a variety of plant life at Pulpit Rock. In places it was dry enough for wild cacti.
Other places it was wet enough for beautiful, overarching trees.
While at times scraggly pine trees were struggling to hold on wherever they could.
All this on a trail that's maybe a mile in length - variety is the word here. To see lots more variety, visit My World Tuesday.

  3. You go from one ecosystem to another and end up at this lovely view. I like the shadow cast by the pine.

  5. I found your blog through the Outdoor Blogger Network. Glad you signed on!

    I grew up in Colorado Springs. I remember when Palmer Park was at the edge of town and Academy Blvd did not exist. Worked at Cave of the Winds and at the zoo, living in Old Colorado City.

    It's nice to see pictures from the old stomping grounds.

  15. love all of your shots but the first Bwahahaha, too many bad memories, when I was 14 we lived in Lawton OK, and I was running and tripped and fell in a bed of that stuff, It did hurt, had to go to the Emergency room to get all of the little barbs out..let me tell you painful is too mild a work to describe it.
    Your last shot is just heavenly.
