Greetings from Saguaro National Park

National parks are for EVERYONE. I myself am disabled, allowing me to have an access pass to get into the parks. I’m not a hiker, so even just getting to see the beauty in all the parks is such a great thing for me. I am particularly in love with all things Arizona, so I chose our last trip to Saguaro to share. The beauty in the desert is unmatched, and I love the giant saguaros- they are absolutely gorgeous.

Sincerely,
Stephanie

Saguaro National Park

It’s the iconic image of the American Southwest: The giant saguaro cactus, standing tall amid the arid desert, arms perpetually raised to the sky. At Saguaro National Park, you can see more than 1.6 million of these giant saguaro — the largest forest of its kind on the planet.

State(s): Arizona

Established: 1994
