Pretty cool right?
I can’t get enough of saguaro cacti (as you can tell), and I thought that one up there was particularly wild.
Did you know it can take TEN years for a baby saguaro to grow one inch??
It takes about 75 years to reach 6 feet high and at around 100 years they start to grow arms.
Yes, there are some old suckers around these parts.
Another day we went on this one:
I know, the scenery is starting to look kind of similar, right?
By then it was too late to ask, but we happened to cross paths with them again at the top and tried to figure out their secrets. They looked amazing. I wonder if I can still look that good when I’m 70 if I just keep hiking? HA!
…and it was a little steeper.
There we go.
I can’t do double-black-diamond ski hills but we conquered this one:)
…and found another little friend en route back down.
