Kites and Cacti

{Plains pricklypear, Opuntia tolyacantha}

{Spikemoss, Selaginella}
Sunday afternoon we headed out to Crow Peak Bench. Ben needed to collect some cacti for another researcher and this arid land was the perfect place. Ever since Pieter flew kites on Lummi he is always wanting to fly some more. These wide open fields were just right for Pieter to run back and forth with the kite. Amazingly enough, he didn't get any spines through his boots. And he only dropped the line twice and the handle, thankfully, got caught in some scraggly bushes. We are really looking forward to our move to Puerto Rico, but it is so nice to visit these spots one more time to see such beautiful views of the landscape.
