I stop to look at a cactus growing in an unusual horizontal habit, one pad at a time

Well, here it is, Summit Spring, Mojave National Preserve, a disgusting concentrate of cow shit and water
Usually, I like to linger at a desert spring and enjoy the specialness of moisture in a dry country. But not here at Summit Spring. The scent of the rotting cow shit is sickening in the hot sun and the flies buzzing around it are annoying.
