Tori’s Bucket List: See a Giant Cactus

If you go to Arizona, going down to Tucson to see the gigantic cacti is well worth the drive. This was a first for our little family – we had seen cacti before but not ones this large!

Our good friend Dannylle (pronounced Daniel) picked us up and drove us around Saguaro National Park and it was so good to spend time with him AND be amazed at these strange cacti together. This was a very unique and simple National Park and we really enjoyed it.

We learned that the saguaro can live to be over 200 years old, and they don’t grow arms until they are 75 years old. If their arms are pointed down that means that they had frostbite at some point in their life and the arm was injured. If I remember correctly, some of the saguaro are over 70 feet tall!

Tori was very alert, as you can see in the pictures, and it was so fun to show her these strange and beautiful cacti. We are so thankful for each and every adventure we are able to take her on ❤
