Saguaro National Park

Jana did a terrific job of blogging about our trip to see the Saguaro National Park. By the way you pronounce this Sew-wa-ro. A short a on the middle syllable. This is the type of cactus most of us think of when we think of Arizona. Well as Jana says in her blog they only grow in the Sonoran desert which is in Arizona and northern Mexico. So pretty special. We enjoyed all the desert beauty. Kent and I had been here but not since 1978. So it was a treat for us too. I hope you go and see Jana’s pictures. They are much better than mine. She has a better camera. Hah!
Love, Jan for the Roaming Reimers too.

I visited Saguaro National Park with Aunt Janet and Uncle Kent.  There are two locations of it, an East and West.

I wanted to see the West, the reviews were better.  I can’t compare, but the West was pretty impressive.

They grow only in the Sonoran Desert in Arizona and Mexico.

One of the Park guides told us to drive the scenic loop and take a short hike on Signal Hill trail to see the Petroglyphs at the top.

It was definitely worth the little climb, even just to see the view.

I like these cacti with the red spikes, they are Christmas colors.
