On January 2nd, we fly back to Phoenix. It is always difficult to leave family and friends but the -40 C weather is not something we will miss!
Time for daily morning walks. Phoenix is smack in the middle of the Sonoran Desert and one of this desert’s unique marvel
is the Saguaro cactus. In our park, there just happens to be a giant one.
The Saguaro is the largest cactus of the U.S.A and can only be found here. It absorbs and stores amazing amounts of water. Because of that, the fallen arm on the ground weighs close to 300 pounds! It takes 50 years before the plant blossoms with the beautiful state flower of Arizona.
