Saguaro (sa-wa-ro) National Park is just east of Tucson Arizona. It is full of Saguaro cactus. If you’ve never seen a forest of cactus it is worth a look:

Plenty of hiking trails with beautiful desert vistas. Plus a nice covered picnic area where I stopped to make some sandwiches:

That large 20 foot tall skinny cactus in the foreground with the bright orange flowers on top is called an Ocotillo (Oh-ko-tee-o)

There is a winding loop road that wanders through the ridgelines and down to the flats. If you like the desert with blooming cactus April is a good time to visit:
