This is the one on the east with a rollercoaster ride that I remember doing once on bicycle.
The one way road goes for 8 miles through areas of all types of cactus. But the statley Saguaro, the blossom of which is the Arizona state flower, is why people visit here.
I will have to revisit in June when the Saguaro blossoms are at their finest. About a month or two later the bright red fruit are ready for harvest. No longer harvested by the indigenous people, it is ready fruit for the birds.
Saguaro skeletons stand tall.
Wild flowers cover the desert floor.
