Spent the afternoon at Saguaro National Park (pronounced Sa-WAH-ro).  Saguaro is the name of the cactus which grows there.  They only grow in the Sonoran desert (southern Arizona / NW Mexico), and live to about 150-200 years old.  They dont flower until theyre ~35 years, and dont start branching until theyre ~50-70 years old.
