Tucson's unique purple saguaro ~

You probably know by now that the Sonoran Desert is home to the heroic saguaro. But did you know that Tucson is home to the rare PURPLE saguaro? Yes, they are seen around town supporting bus shelters. And this patch of beautiful matching purple flowers just adds to the cheer!


  1. Are all the bus stops like this? Cool.

  2. Hi there, Tucson has several different styles of bus shelters - all are eyecatching. I featured one on August 25 from South Tucson that is constructed of metal figures holding up the roof. http://www.tucsondailyphoto.com/2010/08/purple-people-shelter.html
