It’s time again for the family’s annual Spring Break trek to my parents’ home in Lake Havasu City Arizona. Hanging out in the sun with the family near the water makes for a nice reprieve from the last several months of Utah winter.

Today’s image is of a Tricocereus cactus in my folks’ yard. This particular cactus blooms only once a year and for the second year in a row it happened on the day after our arrival. The beautiful flowers will be gone within a day (or so I’m told) and made for a nice springtime capture.
