We spent one long day driving 3 hours to Phoenix (in the valley) to visit my aunt. We first stopped at a look out along the Mugollon Rim where you could see for miles and miles.
I was amazed to see the saguaro cactus growing like weeds all along the highway.
I was happy to find a barrel cactus in bloom.
It was only 105 degrees the day we visited, and I don’t care how “dry” it is — I was STILL sweating!
