The Saguaro Desert

When we talked about going to the South West, the kids all wanted to know if they would see those big catuctuses. Those big cactuses are called Saguaro cactuses and the Saguaro Desert is where they live. There is actually a Saguaro Desert National Park near Tuscon which was a little too far out of our way for us to include. The Cactuses live along southern Arizona and California and in northern Mexico.
