Arizona Holiday continued … Old Tucson Studios: Part 1

On the way to Old Tucson Studios we drove through about the biggest
Saguaro Cactus forest I’ve ever seen.
Turns out we’re in Saguaro National Park.

Old Tucson

Quite a sight for us Northerners. We have castus in Alberta – a few varieties – notably Prickly Pear – but these Saguaro are a novelty to us.

  1. Yep, I’ve seen those mighty tall bandits from the side of the road like this. I can let my imagination run wild at sunset when it’s dark and they are silhouetted. I swear their arms move 😉

  2. Those cactus are so straight! Each one, perfectly at attention. Interesting. We saw saguaro in Arizona, but they didn’t look like that. They had branches. Maybe those were just very young?
