This is a young saguaro that is probably about 30 years old. We took a sunset hike with a ranger led group on 5 December.

Amazing these plants can grow out of the rocks. The wavy pattern on this barrel cactus caught my eye.

A wavy sunset too! The almost full moon rose to guide us back to Sus picnic area.

Great lighting. We took the Hugh Norris Trail about a mile up to the large boulders and overlook.

Such a beautiful place to watch the sunset. Wish it was a closer drive to the condo.
