It’s pronounced ‘Sah-where-oh’ which I finally learned after leaving Arizona. Off I-10, it’s a small patch of land outside of Tucson. Saguaro National Park is named after the Saguaro Cacti, which the park is full of. I’m no Cacti guy, but the Saguaro is the Cactus we think of in TV and movies. You know, the ‘New Age Pastor’ Cactus, or the ‘whoah now, back off guy’ cactus, or the ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ cactus.
The park has a driving loop, where you can see and hike as much as you can. The temperature rose to 105, and the cacti were looking more and more…animated. It was time to get some horchata and a Sonora Dog.
