"Not our most ostentatious national park" Saguaro National Park by zrim

Saguaro National Park Travel Guide: 214 reviews and 558 photos

Until recently this park was a National Monument which seemed to suit this protected habitat of the giant saguaro cactus. The landscape is eerily beautiful and the saguaro is indeed an awesome piece of vegetation. However, there is nothing spectacular about this park that would place it in the same echelon as the great national parks such as Yellowstone, Glacier or Big Bend.

    We're going to Tucson for Christmas and hope to visit Saguaro. Wish we could be there for the cactus bloom.

    A very good tips! It was the first of many US National parks I visited and I liked there a lot! If I only meet a mountain lion (puma)... :-)

    Not the splendor of the Grand Canyon, eh?
