Arizona's Saguaro Cacti (Phoenix Trip - March/2010)

No matter how many times my husband and I drive back from Phoenix, I never tire of the scenic beauty. Nature is ever-changing, and there are always new and beautiful images along the way. During our last trip (March, 2010), I was fascinated with Arizona's cactus plants. So... I took out my handy camera and while Ted was driving 70-80 miles per hour, I snapped shots all along the way until they disappeared.

When I got home, I decided to find out more about the Saguaro cactus, so I went to one of my favorite sites (Wikipedia) where I found lots of informative details - along with great photos. Did you know that the Saguaro cactus blossom is the state flower of Arizona? The title of this article links to their website. Just click on the title to enjoy the photos and information.
