As a kid growing up in India in the late 80s and early 90s, my introduction to the Saguaro was through e̶n̶c̶y̶c̶l̶o̶p̶e̶d̶i̶a̶s̶ Cartoon Network and old Western movies! Thanks to my wild imagination back then, I believed that all deserts might resemble those in Wild West - arid land dotted with the prickly green human-with-arms-riased-shaped cacti 🌵But, not having seen a desert in real life, and with the only catci present in India being of the smaller kind, I soon forgot about the Saguaros in a typical case of "out of sight, out of mind". That was to change many years later when Amo and I moved to the States. . Having fallen in love with the National Park System in the 4 years that we've been in the US, we strive to utilize every long weekend and some normal weekends to visit (and if possible, camp at) a National Park. After discovering that Saguaro National Park in Arizona is just a 7 hours-long drive away from where we live in SoCal, the recent 4 days-long Thanksgiving weekend presented the perfect opportunity to visit my 22nd and Amo's 25th US National Park! . Saguaro National Park, consisting of two separate areas to the east and west of the city of Tucson, protects and preserves the Saguaros that are endemic to this portion of the Sonoran Desert. Pronounced Sah-wah-roh, the US' largest cactus can grow to a height of over 40 feet on an average (the tallest one ever measured was 78 feet in height!), and is one of the main symbols of the American West. Needless to say, walking by these giants was a humbling experience, not to mention a childhood fantasy come true! . . A warm shout-out to Kitty, our awesome and inspiring near-octagenarian @Airbnb host in Tucson, for making our trip extra special with her radiant positive energy.
