Photo By Rick Williams

  • Title: Saguaro National Park Az
  • State/Province/Region: Arizona
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Saguaro National Park
  • Nearest Town: Tucson
  • Brief Directions: Saguaro National Park has 2 sections, one is the NW boundary of Tucson, Arizona; the other is the SE boundary. In between are the 9000'+ Santa Catalina Mountains inside the Coronado National Forest which forms the northern boundary of Tucson.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: There are about 1.9 million saguaros inside Saguaro National Park! Saguaro cactus bloom season is May; each arm may have a couple of dozen in good years. The 3-4" flowers are needed by migrating bats in order to survive their spring crossing of the Sonoran Desert; the resulting fruit is used by many species, especially doves including the migratory whitewing dove.

    Thank you kindly Laura! I'm sorry for not responding sooner, as it's hard to get to a computer right now. I always enjoy the Spring with wonderful colors. I look forward to sharing some new Spring...
