I don't know why they call this Picket Post, but they do. I call this my mountain. Every time my wife and I drive by I always tell her I wish I owned this mountain.

Have a great day/night my dear friends! Thanks for your comment and fave!! Cheers!

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Echinocactus_grusonii

"Echinocactus grusonii, popularly known as the Golden Barrel Cactus, Golden Ball or, amusingly, Mother-in-Law's Cushion, is a well known species of cactus, and is endemic to east-central Mexico.

  

It is rare and critically endangered in the wild, where it is found near Mesa de Léon in the state of Querétaro, and in the state of Hidalgo.[1] The population was critically reduced in the 1990s, by the creation of the Zimapán Dam and reservoir in Hidalgo.[1] The cactus grows in volcanic rock on slopes, at altitudes around 1,400 metres (4,600 ft)."

“The first law of nature is self-preservation. Cut off that which may harm you. But if it is worth preserving, and is meaningful, nourish it and have no regrets. Ultimately, this is true living and love of self...from within.”
