El Circo Cheap – West Coast Style

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

I happened to be in LA a week or so back for about 24 hours.

It so happened that some friends of mine from Aloft Aerial Dance were in town doing some performances as part of their El Circo Cheapo Get Rich Slow Tour.  So I, of course, wanted to stop by and take some photos.  That’s where the performance images that will be appearing over the next week or two came from.

If you happen to be in Chicago I highly recommend you go see El Circo Cheapo.  It’s worth the money, easy, and a really fun Friday night.

So originally when I saw this I thought it looked like a small fuzzy Beavertail Cactus.  I thought that was just a funny phrase.

In actuality it’s an Old Man Cactus, I think, and that name is not as funny.  I’m trying to learn all the vegetation out here, at least a little, and it’s going to take a while.

I did find a nice resource in Bird and Hike where they list the various habitats, and the various cacti around Vegas.

Also everything I thought was Beavertail Cactus is a member of the Pricklypear Cactus family.  More to learn.

It wouldn’t be so strange, if it wasn’t a sign buried up to the top of the post, and if it wasn’t many miles from anywhere.  I guess if you’ve got a ridge on each side blocking any view from the road the valley in between is good for anything, including dumping your ruble and dirt.  Sad really.

I’m apparently fascinated by the Beavertail Cactus.  It might just be the name, Beavertail, hehe.
