Saguaro National Park

Our last stop on our road trip home was to Saguaro National Park which is split into two halves on either side of Tuscon, Arizona.  After our cave tour at Colossal Cave, we spent the afternoon cactus-touring along the scenic loop of the east park and then found some dispersed camping in the foothills back near Colossal Cave.


The next morning we made our way across Tuscon to explore the western half of the park.  Each half is a little different, including the visitor centers.  I wouldn’t skip either one.  We didn’t do any hiking but just toured the scenic loop, checking out the cactus varieties up close.  That evening we were treated to a grand sunset out in the open desert west of Phoenix, near Saddle Mountain.
