      Saguaro National Park in Tucson, Arizona is another natural wonder of the good old USA. This park has hiking trails, picnic areas, and absolutely no swimming, because it is in the middle of the Sonoran Desert.

      This park is absolutely great and has miles and miles of saguaro cactus which is unique


      to the Sonoran Desert.

      It is the largest cactus species in the USA, and has a life span of up to 200 years.

      Those that make it to old age may weigh more then 8 tons and stand 50 ft tall.

      There is also an abundance of desert creatures such as black ...


      • widow spiders, tarantulas, badgers, road runners, coyotes, prairie dogs, javelinas, and scorpions among others.

        Abviously you shouldn’t attempt to touch the wildlife as snakes and spiders can be dangerous, and are not really interested in human contact anyway.

        If you have a metal detector you can bring it and search for treasure

        which is always fun.

        But remember you are in the desert so bring plenty of water and stick to the trails or you will become hopelessly lost and incredibly thirsty.

        Do not visit Arizona in June, July or August it is so hot even the locals move to California or take their vacations elsewhere.
