Desert Plants and Flowers in San José del Cabo

Talia and I like to run and hike together when we get a chance. Sometimes we go to the estuary and sometimes we visit the camels and the dolphins, or visit the horses at the beach, and other times just walk around the historic district of San José. 

One of our favorite things to see, besides the animals, are the interesting flowers and plants that exist in this dry environment.
Mangos are Talia's favorite fruit and it is almost mango season!!! They are just starting to change from green to red and yellow.
Of course there are cactus fruits.
And this cactus was budding.
This little bush looked like it had apples but they weren't as hard or big as an apple.
There are lots of interesting seed pods.
Some are really weird kiwi-looking things.
Others are bright orange....
With red circular seeds inside when they burst open.
Guamuchil fruit that gives you dry mouth.
Talia loves the flowers!
We saw hummingbirds around these yellow trumpet-shaped flowers.
This looked like a tree at the bottom and a cactus at the top!

Come hiking with us!
