Saguaro National Park East

On this page are my photos from two visits to Saguaro National Park (East) in Tucson. I'll be the first to admit these photos are so-so; they really don't capture how beautiful the desert scenery is.

Late Evening - January 8, 2007 - I explored a hiking trail near the end of the day.

Saguaro Sunset The sunset behind a saguaro. Very nice!

The next day, I returned at about 2 p.m. to the Broadway Trailhead at Saguaro National East.

Steve in Arizona I was so happy to be in the Arizona sun. That's me with a large prickly pear and an odd-shaped saguaro in the adjacent photo. :)

Arizona Desert That small tree that's shaped like a lamp shade is a cholla. There are many variations of this type of cactus.

Friends, if you love the desert and are especially enamored with the saguaro, then you must visit Saguaro National Park when you're in Tucson. Enjoy!
