Keith was browsing the internets, no longer called a series of tubes since Senator Stevens lost to Mark Begich, and he found this picture of a giant cactus. Even bigger than that, I’d say. Let’s call it “gigantic.”
It’s a Pachycereus weberi from Oaxaca. Photo by Arturo Anaya from Columnar Cacti.
Did I mention that Hap went to school with Senator-Elect Begich? Oh, the stories he could tell. Or not. But congratulations.
