Mike, that's one cereusly impressive saguaro!  I never cease to be amazed and awed by these giants - they all have such personalities.

Awesome - I'm always amazed when I see these wonderful giants.

Mike - the Saguaros are amazing. I had no idea they were protected, nor how long it took them to grow. I learned so much on my last trip...but what a photo!!

They are spectacular.  I read up a little bit on them and was amazing to discover that they only grow about an inch a year and that saguaros with more than 5 'arms' are estimated to be about 200 years old.  It's a special treat to see them.

Wow Mike love the camera angle you used when you snaped this big boy. I guess you could call then the 'redwoods of the desert'.

Looks like a huge distorted hand, reaching from the ground like the final scene from the movie "Carrie!"

Spectacular Mike - I hope someday to see them in person.  I'll have to check out your "SendOutCards" link too!

You have to see them to really appreciate them.

Good luck and success.

Wow!  That one looks gigantic!  How tall is it?  Is it near town?
