Saguaro cactus is the cactus which you usually see in cartoons. They grow to over 50 feet tall and can
have many arms.
Saguaro National Park is divide into two parts. An eastern part located east of Tucson, and a western part located west of Tucson. Because the eastern part gets more rain fall it has the tallest Saguaro Cactus. Unfortunately, the road in the eastern part is being worked on and that part of the park is closed.
