Old & new ~ startling contrast

Here's an interesting contrast of the mighty saguaro. On the left is a live, healthy specimen in Saguaro National Park. Just a few feet away is a leaning, dessicated "skeleton" of a dead saguaro. The ribs from these dried up plants are used for furniture, among other things.


  1. Hope you are OK, since no August 7th photo?

  2. Thank you for checking on me, Elizabeth! My internet connection was down from Friday night to Sunday night so I couldn't post. The COX repair man came on Sunday night and is coming back on Monday to replace the old, old cable connection. Whew~
