Desert Day Trip - Saguaro Stand

Went to southern California in December and Scott drove me around for picture taking. Today he came out, so it was my turn to show him around. 

I have always wanted to stop along the highway on the way to Superior (or Boyce Thompson SP) and just take pictures.  The sun isn't exactly cooperative toward southbound shots, so we decided to stop again on the way back.

Here's a chain-fruit cholla

I do like how the ocotillo leaf out after some decent rain and they stand out when backlit.

As you look at all the saguaros it is seldom you see a 'typical' one with two arms sticking up.
