Saguaro National Park

After the conference we went to the eastern half of the Saguaro National Park.  I needed more giant cactus-sightings.

This is a river.  Sometimes.  When it rains.  Lots.

This landscape is so strange it just does not get old!  Obviously, since I took ten gazillion photographs of it.


We clambered about on some rocks.  Unbeknownst to us, it was in an area that Africanized Bees had been frequenting, terrorizing others.  Though we did not see the warning sign until leaving the rocks, we luckily did not encountered any bees, Africanized or not.

This is my superhero pose.

I know what you mean about the incredible landscape of the desert. It's so much more than a picture can show. I think it is hard for an Easterner to comprehend standing next to a cactus 40 feet tall. It's unreal!

Love the superhero pose, although I think I saw that move in an Indoor Guard show, didn't I? All you need is a flag!

I will have to put Saguaro National Park on my list of places to see. I have no experience with the desert terrain and just looks like maybe it's not real. But, I know it is!
