Off to Lamy today to photograph some of the cacti down there. O. imbricata, phaeacantha, polyacantha, polyacantha v. trichophora, engelmannii (I think), Echinocereus viridiflorus and triglochidiatus, hopefully Toumeya papyracantha. There's some very odd looking Opuntias down there as well. Who knows.

Lamy has a sort of ghost town feel to it, despite the stunning degree of development going on in that direction. Just across the amtrak line by the hill that rises from the plain there it seems fairly unspoiled, especially when you start to rise.

Good place to do some step 4 writing.
