Saguaro National Park is divided into two parks, East and West with Tucson between them. We were here last year but the East park was closed due to road resurfacing.

You pass a lot of cacti of all types while driving on the park road.

The birds bore holes and build nests in the Saguaro cactus.
They seem to pick out one cactus and then a bird city is built!

This one has arms growning all over the place.

Some of the cactus have buds.

On a short hike.

A Barrel Fish Hook cactus in bloom.

This Barrel cactus has a very unusual growth pattern.

I'm not sure why some only have two arms and some have a lot.
