The Saguaros of Tucson

We spent a few days in Tucson, AZ camped out in the driveway of our friend Max’ house on the eastern edge of town.

Highlights of our stay included a visit to the local Artisan and Farmers Market where we enjoyed live music performed by this talented Vaquero and some locally made tamales for lunch.

We spent an afternoon at nearby Saguaro National Park where they have a lovely 8-mile loop drive for those not prepared to hike the long trails into the deeper wilderness. Here are some of the handsome specimens we viewed. The saguaro can grow to over 70 feet tall and usually doesn’t develop it’s first arm until it is 50 to 75 years old. So, these guys are old, and beautiful in their own way!
