“come see North America's largest cacti”

Tucson, Arizona is home to North America’s largest cacti. The giant saguaro is the universal symbol of the American west. These majestic plants, found only in a small portion of the United States, are protected by Saguaro National Park, to the east and west of the modern city of Tucson. Here you have a chance to see these enormous cacti, silhouetted by the beauty of a magnificent desert sunset.

Saguaro National Park is uniquely situated around the 500 square miles that make up Tucson; which is at the heart of the Sonoran desert. Sitting at just under 2,400 feet above sea level, Tucson is 60 miles north of the U.S. Mexican border and about 100 miles south of the state capital, Phoenix.

Its two districts are separated by the city's 1 million residents. The Tucson Mountain District (TMD) on the west, and the Rincon Mountain District (RMD) to the east, are approximately 30 miles (45-60 minutes) apart. While similar in terms of plants and animals, the intricate details make both areas praiseworthy. The TMD (west) boasts large stands of saguaro cactus creating a breathtaking saguaro forest, whereas the RMD (east) hosts a magnificent sky island, where you can find bears, cougars and the ever elusive coati (aka kudamundi).

Great weather in January! Did a couple of short hikes. The 'drive' was really nice. We have a dog so we can't hike the trails. :( Beautiful!

Went to the western half and made it just in time to hike the short jaunt up Signal Hill for some excellent views of the sunset. Grab a few gifts in the visitors center nearby too!

Quite the place. It was HOT in June, but it is the desert. We got in on a talk about the lizards of the desert, and that was cool.

Went in January and the weather was perfect. This was one of our favorite stops on our Florida to California road trip. It's truly a place that must be seen in person.

The GPS (garmin) took me the wrong way, so make sure, or it's a 25 mile mistake, Beautiful plants, Went in early September, and it was HOT, but it's the desert. Very interesting plants, hard to imagine some are 300 years old, with just the tad of rain they get. Definitely worth the trip, go early in the morning.

Just a really really striking place. Especially if you love that old Western desert scene. Can't beat it with a stick.
