The Giants of Cactus

I'm not convinced that I'm in Arizona until I see the giant saguaro cactus.  They seem to appear suddenly on hillsides about 40 miles north of Tucson and I call it the Arizona forest.  They are huge, towering above the other cactus and sometimes loaded with "arms".  Guess they can drink in a lot of water during the monsoons and store it in their trunks.  Of course, dangerous pointed spines keep everything away from them so they are free to thrive.
