So, since it's my last week off before I have to go back to work, I decided to play Tourist today and headed off to Saguaro National Park. I drive by it nearly every day, so I figured it was high time to stop in.

This is from the Javelina Rock spot. I did see a couple javelinas, but way, way down the hill.

And the hills are peppered with saguaro.

And then I drove some more and saw this . . . hey, wait a minute. Pooka, get out of my slide show!

Ahem.

Look, here's a saguaro up close. I've never been so close to one before. It was nifty. This one sort of looks like it's conducting a chorus.

And I was messing around with a different setting on the camera. Sky wasn't really this dark blue. But, hey, that fuzzy-looking cactus turned out well. This is about my favorite pic of the day, I think. And you can click on any of the pics and it will take you to the rest of the pics. I took a bunch.

    On the hill's ridgeline,
a saguaro reaches arms
    straight up in the sky
and looks across its domain
of a bright desert valley.

Great pics! Gosh it's beautiful there. Someday I want to see it with my own eyes!

Thanks for the special guest appearance, Pooka!
