While in Arizona I went with Katharine’s uncle John and cousin William on a short drive and even shorter walk through Tonto National Forest. We only drove through the southern tip of the National Forest which is covered with saguaro cactus.
After seeing them littering the landscape sticking up like sparse trees I had to see one up close.
They are very unusual looking and their “branches” look like they could just fall off.
I think the west side of the red rock mountains would have looked incredible during sunset but our visit was short so maybe another time.
