We picked a perfect day to visit Saguaro National Park. We drove the loop, saw tons of Saguaro Cactus and desert views. We stopped at the Visitor Center (along with a whole bunch of other visitors) and learned more about the Saguaro. So here’s just a couple tidbits: the Saguaro Cactus can have an average life span of 150 – 175 years and can weigh up 6 tons and grow to be 50 feet tall.
They don’t produce flowers until they’re 35 years old and don’t grow their “arms” until they’re 50-75 years old. They are like the sages of the desert.
