Well-Nigh Wordless Wednesday: Saguaros

When I’ve done my summer field work, it typically involves getting up early in the morning and driving out to a pond in the desert to collect giant water bug eggs.  It’s the monsoon season, so the weather is wildly unpredictable, but it does make for some very gorgeous views:

I’ve lived in Arizona the majority of my life, but I never get tired of looking at saguaros.  They’re just so darned stately!  Really going to miss them when I move on.

  1. the saguaros seem to me to be doing well in their habitat. seems like they are increasing their population. when i was a kid here in arizona in the 1950’s they were pretty much toppled over for construction, road construction, etc. we have come a long way! making saguaro wine is a “kick”. from the harvesting to the fermenting, but pay attention there is a “fine line” in it’s fermentation where it goes from wine to vinegar!

Have something to say?
