Superstition Wilderness - off trail bushwhack.
This is a view from Black top Mesa looking to the NE in the Superstition Wilderness outside of Apache Junction, Arizona.. This is on the SW edge of Black top mesa. The petroglyphs and Oro are around this corner. This is a beehive cactus (Escobaria vivipara) in the foreground and a young Saguaro behind it. Saguaros throw a first branch when they are about 75 years old.
