Saguaro National Park
« on: March 06, 2011, 07:18:46 PM »

 Had a good time visiting this national park a couple days ago. When I was talking to one of the guides I called it the Saguaro National FOREST, she got a good laugh out of that. I like this cactus, it's belly is bigger than mine!

 Owls, wrens, rodent's of all sizes, it's like a luxury condo for all takers!
They are like the Black Tupelo of the desert.

I was there back in September and loved it. Did you have a chance to visit Old Tucson Studios?

They are what I call a "Cowboy Cactus", because any genuine Western movie has them.   :)  I think those guys get plenty old.
