Cephalocereus, Pilocereus ... or what? Photo was taken August 2013 at Balboa Park in San Diego, Ca.

Well, I thought I responded to this. Apparently not. I believe it's a Cephalocereus. Sometimes it's so difficult to tell about the older specimens.

Thanks Tee, after looking at lots of photo's I was leaning towards C. senilis but I don't know a thing about cacti. Green Grin!

I think you are probably correct. That would be my choice too ... the Old Man Cactus.

From googling for cactus at Balboa Park I found mention of Old Man Cactus, C. senilis in a couple of places but I have so much trouble comparing photo's and don't know cactus at all. This is one of the things that came up while googling: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/12561397
