In stunning contrast to yesterday's post, here is a huge and stately living saguaro at Saguaro National Park East. Look at the many arms it has sprouted! This specimen is quite old as it must be around 75 years old before it sprouts its first arm. Learn more about these desert beauties here.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
