Hello from Tucson!

cactusKristina and I are in Tucson, AZ at moment, visiting our friends Tad and Alanna. There are Saguaro cactii everywhere. They're pretty remarkable, actually. In a single rainstorm, it's possible for the roots of a Saguaro to collect 200 gallons of water.

Saguaros are all over Gates Pass, outside of Tucson, where we watched the sunset last night. From a distance, the Saguaros at Gates Pass resemble a scattering of green sticks on the hillside. To my Pacific Northwestern eyes, it's a surreal sight. And thoroughly captivating.

Looks like a picture straight from a Western. I travelled the mid west and west of the USA including Arizona many years ago as a teenager (with my parents) and loved it.
Oh, and don't feel pressured about the guest post, enjoy your trip! :)
