The Cholla Garden sits on a fuzzy border between the high Mojave and low Colorado deserts. The Colorado (3000' and below) is part of the Sonoran desert and reaches as far East as Tucson. The Mojave (above 3000') occupies much of California and into Nevada. The Bigelow (Jumping) Cholla and Ocotillo are indicative of the lower desert. The high desert's signature plant, the Joshua Tree, does not grow near here, but this Cholla Garden is in fact on the border between the deserts.
So, I am proud to present to you this wonderland: on the edge of night, on the dusk of the Equinox, by a wash's gulley, between two deserts, and between storms, the Cholla Garden glows green, basking in the eerie day's-end stormy glow of dusk. I love this place.
