Rincon Mountains Professional Review and Guide

"Saguaro National Park is home to the richest stands of saguaro cactus anywhere in the world, and you’ll travel beneath these giant sentinels of the desert for the first few miles of this passage.

If you’re here in early summer you may be treated to their brilliant white blooms—the Arizona state flower—which attract nighttime pollinators to sip sweet nectar from the tops of the tall cacti. If pollinated, the saguaro produce ruby-red fruits in June that sustain almost every desert critter. A staple food source for native people, saguaro fruit is still harvested in the traditional way by the Tohono O’odham."
