Travel Theme: Sweet

Sometimes revenge is a little sweet…


Halfway through our first hike in New Mexico Ryan stepped off the main trail and landed right on a low growing Prickly Pear Cactus. It’s needle sharp spines buried so deeply into his shoes, socks and skin that it took a pair of pliers to clear the last ones out of the rubber soles.

At lunch the first thing he ordered was a prickly pear frozen lemonade.  It was delicious.
