These sorts of tall cactus are all over the place out in this part of Arizona. I don't recall seeing this type when Jeff and I went through Arizona 2 years ago, but we were not as close to Mexico then, as we are now. I think of these as 'classic' cactus, the sort you see in a lot of old westerns.
Tomorrow is our 2nd wedding anniversary, and it's Day of the Dead and we will be in Tombstone! I can't wait! I hope to get plenty of shots at Boothill Cemetery! I am hoping that between Tombstone and El Paso we can find some Day of the Dead stuff.
