Hey Will--Wanted to tell you that each time I look at this picture, something more happens with it. It's a great shot; really, it is.
Wow. Great picture, but I don't see one saguara (not sure if that's spelled right) cactus. Where was this shot taken?
Password,Not bad! You are one letter off. Most people don't even know that word. The type of cactus you are referencing is the saguaro--which is indigenous only to the Sonoran desert around Tucson. It is a remarkable form of cactus in that it takes them sixty-plus years to grow their distinctive arms.I took this picture in the high Sonoran desert south of Tucson in Amado, Arizona, very near the mexican border. I was on the Agua Linda (spanish for "sweet water") Farm--an organic, family-run operation. The area near the international border is at a higher elevation, and so there is more vegetation--and fewer cacti.The mountain chain in the background is the Santa Rita Mountains.
