    Arachnaphobes and Cholla-phobes should clearly stay away from Anza-Borrego.

    The common sense wife and the jumping cholla. . . two extremes that make for great travel narrative.

    I had to laugh out loud at your 'cholla' stories! After reading your Intro, I was going to ask you 'what the heck is a jumping cholla?' Sounds worse than a Porcupine!!
