A welcome beauty along I-10 near Benson, Arizona. During a gas stop, on
a trip from California to New Mexico, I saw this cactus along the side
of the filling station. Even though I had grown up around cactus, this
one just seemed to catch my attention as an "above average" cacti. To test
the theory of it being above average, I entered a print of this photo in
the county fair, and it won a ribbon. Even among judges who also lived
among the cactus, they too must have seen something special here.
