Unknown plant from Arizona

A forumist on a Norwegian forum has asked whether anybody can identify these plants from Arizona. Pictures taken by his granddad 100 years ago:

It looks to me to be a Cholla cactus. Given the size of the plants, possibly Opuntia fulgida, but it is hard to tell. There are several large Cholla cacti native to the region. Here's a link to check http://www.desertusa.com/mag99/may/papr/chollas.html

Southwest Nova Scotia, zone 6b or thereabouts
