There are many trails to hike in the Saguaro National Monument Park in Tucson.
I was hiking and found this stately and gigantic cactus tree. It was a perfect sky and day to take this image.
Remember it takes 80 years of life before a Saguaro cactus can start to grown an arm. You can now see how old the Saguaro cactus is in the photo.
Also, the cactus weighs approximately 100 pounds per foot (150 kilograms per meter). These cactus are very heavy from the dense, moist flesh containing so much water.
This week, the photos on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site features the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia.
