When we visited the China Date Ranch that is located near Tecopah, CA, I snapped some photos of a variety of cactus plants they have on the grounds. They also grow and sell cactus plants as well as, of course, date palms.
As an east coast girl, I find these thorny plants fascinating. I grew up with the lush green forests in North Carolina and Pennsylvania. The desert terrain here is a sharp contrast, and yet very beautiful as well.
Here are some plants I liked.
There is no cost for visiting the ranch or hiking the various trails on the property.
