    I often saw scenes like this in Arizona.

  2. It definitely looks prehistoric.

  3. wow, that’s fascinating!

  4. That’s so interesting, Janet. At first, I thought it was a shed snakeskin. I have one on my windowsill that I found in my garden, and there are lots of similarities. 🙂

    Cool! Very snake like.

    what an extraordinary oddity

  8. Resa says:

    Yes, interesting. At first I thought ……eeeeeee….. snakes!

  9. Wow, that is really cool! I feel bad for anyone with a fear of holes that comes across it… But I love that texture.

    Janet, I had it pegged, but it is an odd-looking remnant. It’s perfect for this challenge!

    Reminds me of coral, or snakeskin!

  12. Jane Lurie says:

    So beautiful and interesting, Janet. They make great subjects. I found the Cholla skeletons equally enticing at Joshua Tree recently. 🙂
