While on a trip to Texas a few years, we happened upon this beautiful cactus growing at Enchanted Rock Park. I would love to have its identity. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,for the ID Frostweed. There are so many beautiful plants growing out west that I am not familiar with and I try to get IDs for them when I can.
