Saguaro National Park
While we were in Arizona we headed down to Tuscon for the day. We enjoyed a quiet day in Saguaro National Park all to ourselves and were consistently in awe of all the cacti which surrounded us. We hiked through dry riverbeds, watched butterflies flutter through the sky and found every beautiful flower growing in the parched desert.
We were in awe of how these cacti grew out of these rocky ledges.
Often people think the desert is monochromatic, but once you look closely there is a wide array of colors represented in the desert.
These saguaros do not start growing “arms” until they are roughly 75-100 years old. Totally amazing!
Planning our route.
Giant paper airplane meets desert.
I loved the white speckles on these butterflies. Nature and its details never stops to inspire me.
The fascinating bones of the cacti. Did you know cacti expands and contracts as it absorbs water?! So cool.
