Took a little excursion to Phoenix Arizona this week. I FINALLY got to see a real live Saguaro cactus. Isn't this always the first thing you picture when you think of the desert. I was so disappointed when I took my big trip out west 5 years ago. I went to Northern Arizona, and southern Utah. No big cacti! I didn't realize they only live way down in southern Arizona. So... I finally made it there. It turns out that Phoenix is hot in August. I stepped out of the airport and immediately thought 'I wonder if this is what Hell is like?'
