Nearly 2 Million Cacti Grow In This Unique Arizona National Park
There’s nothing quite as symbolic of Arizona as the majestic Saguaro. These towering desert warriors are unique to our state and stand for power, resilience, and strength. Nearly two million of the plants call Saguaro National Park home, creating a mystical landscape unlike anything you’ve ever laid eyes on.
