This giant saguaro cactus is one of thousands that dot the southern Arizona landscape….
What a contrast. From desert flora and fauna to a sensible Native American, then on to barren rocks, crooked pine and aspen trees sitting in snow drifts – all within a 50-mile drive.
I’ve been to Arizona and I can tell you there are giant saguaros all over the place, including spots where there aren’t paved trails and little signs. In fact, if you get off the paved trails, you can find entire forests of these things, and not just single sentinels.
