Saguaro Gallery

These giant cactuses are the iconic symbol of the American southwest. Not only are they majestic and stately, each saguaro is unique… kinda like a special snowflake. Most of the really nifty lookin’ ones are much older than me, since they don’t start developing appendages until around age 75.

Pictures speak louder than words, so I am dedicating the remainder of this post to showing off these Sonoran desert beauts. I have also named them for your enjoyment.
