Enormous cacti, silhouetted by the setting sun, for most of us the Giant Saguaro is the universal symbol of the American West. And yet, these majestic plants are only found in a small portion of the United States. Saguaro National Park protects some of the most impressive forests of these sub-tropical giants, on the edge of the modern city of Tucson, Arizona.

    Thank you for the interesting narrative, Lanis. These Saguaro are probably 50 to 75 years old. I believe they begin sprouting their first "limbs" at around 30. The photo is one of the best in this theme.
