Erika's Favorite Park: Saguaro National Park

On this cold Monday afternoon in the big city I'm daydreaming about our beautiful, sunshine soaked parks out west. Today, my favorite is Saguaro National Park in Arizona!

This unique desert is home to the most recognizable cactus in the world, the majestic Saguaro. These desert giants are found only in a small portion of the United States. With an average life span of 150 years, a mature saguaro may grow to a height of 50 feet and weigh over 10 tons!

 

 

 

 

About this Blog:

Part of my job here at American Park Network involves finding incredible, awe-inspiring photos of parks around the country. Some of these images literally take my breath away! As I’m doing photo research, every so often you might hear a gasp of excitement or exclamation of “Woah!” coming from my side of the room. I discover places that I never knew existed in this great, big, beautiful country and I quite literally fall in love with a different park every single day!

This blog series will allow me to share some of favorite destinations with you as I discover the beauty of America from behind my computer screen. Some places will be well known, some will be hidden gems, but either way I hope to help you discover some incredible new parks!
