You’re only a state away . . . (apologies to ‘Annie‘).
After getting back in the Copper State crossing the Colorado River coming from California, it is only a short time before we see the first saguaros growing on the hillsides. I’m not saying there are NO saguaros in California, only that they do not populate the hillsides with hundreds of them like after the river crossing into Arizona. We enjoy seeing them after we cross the river all the way across the Arizona Outback and all the way to home. Click on the image to enlarge.
