Saguaro Cactus


Saguaro Cactus High Rise

DesertHighRise.jpg It’s kind of impressive to stand next to one of these tall cactus here in the Valley of the Sun.  To people who live here I guess it’s a common sight to see, but to someone like me.  It’s very very neat.  I’m not feeling real good this morning, not sure why but I think I’m hanging around the RV and computer to much and need to get back to walking two times a day.

A big thanks goes out to pocoblu for correcting my spelling of the big cactus.

    Question:is the cactus really that tall or is it that your height impaired ? I agree with Z you need to get out & do lots of walking & picture taking & don’t forget to take Deb & Monkey with you otherwise your in deep DODO.
