Last Friday we drove up to Tucson to take in another National Park. Saguaro National Park is split down the middle by the city of Tucson and by the looks of it, it didn’t hurt it a bit. Our plan for the day was to hike the Cactus Forest in the Rincon Mountains but when we got there we changed our minds. I’m not sure whether it was because our last hike was in one of the most exciting places or if it was just that we weren’t too excited about the area. The Saguaro Cactus, the other cactus families, the many different species of birds, and the wild flowers were really beautiful, but taking a 2 to 3 mile hike just didn’t seem to be “the thing to do” today. Now, a little bit about the Saguaro…it all starts with a very small black seed. The seed is about the size of the point of a pin and then verrrryyyy slowwwwlllllyyyy grow to 50 feet and weigh as much a ton in 150 years. That is if they make it…most don’t, but those that do are a piece of art.
