Another tidbit on saguaros; if you transplant them, the compass orientation of the plant must be retained. As the saguaro grows, the skin facing the sun toughens. If you replant with the other side facing the sun, you could get a sunburned saguaro and it will die. When we landscaped our house, each of the two saguaros we had planted had north identified on the plant.

We had driven to Vegas years ago but I don't remember seeing  all the cactus.  I know we drove a different highway at that time.

They really are beautiful in the desert and you have to wonder how they manage to stay alive.  A real wonder of nature.

Isn't the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum a fabulous place? Definitely worth visiting any time you're in the area. Don't know if they still have it, but when we were there, you could buy a discount booklet that had a whole bunch of 2-for-1s including the Desert Museum and Pima Air Museum. It was well worth the purchase price.

Thanks so much.  I'm glad you enjoyed the log.  Our next big journey will be to Alaska this summer.  We loved it last time, but we know new experiences beckon.  I especially love the wildlife up there.

And, I enjoy your extra tips on places to go and historic facts.  We didn't get as much time as we would have liked in Arizona, so we MAY (not will) do a mini-trip in the January-February timeframe.  Dean wants to add it on to Quartzite, but I really don't want to spend a week to 10 days in "The Armpit of the Earth."  I LOVE seeing friends and meeting the new people, but I hate the place, and the strong winds we had last year did not help me like it any better.  I know I'm but one voice (not even my husband agrees), but has anyone ever considered a more civilized place like Tucson?  It has lots of hiking areas, as well as nice, inexpensive parks.

Yes, it is a gem.  I loved it!  There is a discount booklet that I found by googling "discount coupons in Tucson" when we were there.  We will investigate it further when we are in Arizona for a longer time.

There is the "unhosted" New Year's Frally at Catalina State Park between Christmas and New Year's.
