For those who don't know what a Saguaro is let us offer the following brief description....
A Saguaro is "a large, tree-sized cactus species in the monotypic gens Carnegegiea, which can grow to be over 20 meter (~70 ft) tall." ( click here for more information.)

Saguaros are native to the
Sonoran Desert of Arizona and are abundant in the area where we live. They can also be found in Tucson Sonora, Mexico as well as in the and Imperial County of California. Whipple Mountains

The "Old Man" was found south of
and while dead or dying still stands well over 8-ft tall. Tucson
One of the many things we love about looking at Saguaros is that like snowflakes no two look the same. We've also learned that even in death they can take on a presence all their own. Don likes to call the Saguaro "Cactus People". We plan to add more Saguaros as the year goes so stay tuned.
