Good morning dear cacti friends,

we remain a little in Arizona !?
I, alone in the desert. . . that could not go well. . .
After many previous miles, miles2go, rescue in Miles Anderson´s cactus nursery!
(In my little report I have the artistic freedom of the author broader something . . . So do not pay attention to the date stamp )



Every great journey begins with a first small step - or with a good breakfast! Laughing

Cacti like to grow in the shade, the mimosa (Mesquite) donate it.

Good morning dear cacti friends,

today the last part of my trip to the Saguaro National Park.


From Tucson westward, towards the mountains, on the Speedway Blvd
91245

Then it continues on the W.Gates Pass Rd., the name says it all. . .
If you have left the pass it looks like that
91251

If one now turns to the N.Kinney Rd., To get to the Arizona-Sonora Desert-Museum. . .
that´s not the museum Wink
91260

but the way to Red Hills Visitor Center, the "office" from Saguaro National Park
91265

91410


these are the Red Hills
91277

and now some desert plants, mainly cacti. . . Smile
91284


Then I realized, as the arms come to the Saguaros. . . Very Happy Wink

A last look at the landscape and plants. , , now we are on the W.Picture Rocks Rd. in the east back to Tucson.
Oh my God, we drove in circles. , , From Tucson westward, in Saguaro N.P. to the north, then east back to Tucson.
91421

Here you can see why the W.Picture Rocks Rd is what it's called. . .
91418



back in civilisation. . .
91427

my buddy is very pleased. Well, bribery. . . Wink

PS as already indicated - I had a few little pictures of other matters during these days. . . Laughing

Those were great. Many thanks. I really enjoyed the northern Saguaro NP, with the mountains and being up close to it all.
Did you get to go up to Ironwood National Forest while you were there? To see Echinocactus horizonthalonius v. nicholii, and Ferocactus chrysanthus (together with wislizenius).

What a great thing to find a cactus show there, apart from the year round show in the actual Garden! The Central Arizona C&SS has been going for many years, and they publish a monthly newsletter. Just occasionally it gives very interesting information on where specific plants can be seen in habitat, so worth a check from time to time on their website.

And nice to see the art. I guess its the same Chiluly as when I was there in 2009. Quite amazing glass sculptures.
