Happy Leap Day! We had to run a few errands today, but still Noelle and I wanted to take Parker out for at least a little hike. We opted to head over to the Ocotillo Nature Trail which is conveniently located right within Carlsbad City limits.
and then headed back down to the car. Besides the algerita blooms I got a nice photo of some prickly pear glochids, which are little, barbed, hair-like spines.
