I'm still getting cholla-bombed this morning, unpacking my pack! Yesterday, I stepped on an ocotillo branch that unknowningly, was acting as a lever for a ball of cholla (about 15 segments) that got launched into my right leg. And I keep insist on wearing shorts on most trips, because I'd rather deal with the occasional cholla than wear long pants! Still pulling spines out of my knee this morning too.

I remember that photo, I thought it looked like those girly socks back in the 80's, the ones that had a little ball hanging off the back....smile

Hey, don't feel bad if you've been cholla-bombed. It happens to the best:
