The Oasis at Zzyzx Rd - a place with a long and colourful history - what more could you want in the middle of nowhere? You've got an endangered fish (Tui Chub), swings, and an old boat. PERFECTION!
The cutest (but not soft, trust me, I checked) cactus balls I've ever seen! These things are hilarioius! They are called "cotton balls" - only semi-appropriately. I think "basketballs" would work better.
