Early Morning Hike In Saguaro National Park   9 comments

With the sun rising over the Rincon Mountains, east of Tucson in the Saguaro National Park,
The Monday Morning Milers begin hiking the Wildhorse Trail in a chilly 32 degree fall morning.

The Wildhorse Trail is very dusty from no rain in several months.

The desert grasses glow from the morning sun.

The trail leads toward one of the canyons along the Wildhorse Trail.

The park, named after the beautiful giant saguaro cactus, is occasionally graced by the rear crested saguaro cactus.

The saguaro cactus are rarely found in groups, such as this group of twelve 20 to 70-year-old saguaros.

Long after death, the ribs of saguaro remain standing, a shadow of its live self.
