Saguaro National Park


The <a href="https://cactusjungle.com/archives/blog/exit.php?url_id=1801&amp;entry_id=1609" title="http://www.azcentral.com/arizonarepublic/arizonaliving/articles/0118quicktrip0118.html" onmouseover="window.status=’http://www.azcentral.com/arizonarepublic/arizonaliving/articles/0118quicktrip0118.html’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">Arizona Republic visits</a> their local National Park, Saguaro National Park, and comes away the better for it.<br /><br /><div style="margin-left: 40px;"><span style="font-style: italic;">Even if you haven’t been to the western part of this park, you can imagine what it looks like. Massive stands of the namesake cactus are everywhere.<br />
<br />
But fewer people are familiar with the park’s Rincon Mountain District, 30 miles east of the more visited Tucson Mountain District.<br />
<br />
There are fewer saguaros in the eastern section, but it’s thick with other cactuses: cholla, prickly pear, barrel, hedgehog.</span><br /></div><br />There are some nice back roads too. It’s all so dense with so many different types of cactus you could just collapse from all the spiny goodness.<br /><br />
