After leaving Natural Bridges in Utah, I enjoyed visiting this unique desert, particularly because it is home to the impressive cactus in the world, the majestic saguaro. This amazing cactus grows primarily only in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona and Mexico.
The saguaro cactus is one of the defining plants of the Sonoran Desert. These plants are large, tree-like columnar cacti that develop branches as they age, although some never grow arms. These arms generally bend upward and can number over 25. Saguaros are covered with protective spines, white flowers in the late spring, and red fruit in summer.
I was lucky enough to have a chance to see these enormous cacti, silhouetted by the beauty of a magnificent desert sunset.
