Saguaro Wonderland

Right before flying home, Dean ‘n’ I fit in a quick hike through the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy in Scottsdale. It was a quiet, early morning. We saw a couple other people but, mostly, it was just the two of us and the saguaros. My friend, Richelle, shared these fun facts: Saguaros grow about a foot a decade their first 50 years, don’t produce arms until they’re about 100, and reach their full height when they’re around 200 years old. So cool! I have some insane looking notes from stories the mister and I cooked up about these cool, cartoon-y cacti.
