An evening in Saguaro National park
Sunday evening we drove up the road and went to the Saguaro national park. We went in the evening so we could catch the wonderful sunset light. I’m pretty sure I have mentioned that I love the saguaro cactus, they are just so interesting and fun. This area is just packed with saguaro’s. Obviously, that’s why there is a national park here for them.
The light that night was perfect for photography. I love the golden glow the desert gives out.
The old saguaro bones are super cool too. I always have to stop and get photos when I see them. Sometimes you find them standing, like this one, and sometimes they fall over.
They are all just so different, and it’s about impossible to see some of them and not give them human qualities.
Just as the light was about gone, we were driving back home. I have to tell you, I have the best hubby ever. If I say “Stop, I need a photo.” He stops, safely of course. The best thing about these back roads is that there is rarely anyone else out and about. Anyway, I saw this bush along the road with these awesome fluffy flowers.
Wouldn’t you need to stop too? They were so pretty, and unique. I found out yesterday on our day at the Sonoran desert museum, that they are called Fairy dusters. Seems right to me.
And speaking of our day at the museum, I have 862 photos to wade through for tomorrows post. What an amazing place. So be sure to come back and read about all the great things we saw.
