|The Saguaros creep up a mountainside.|
|The Saguaros can create some bizarre forms.|

|The "Crested Saguaro Cactus" is a rare find.|
|If Nancy leaned any closer she would have been skewered.|
|The "Teddy Bear Cholla Cacti" is one of my favorites.|

|This high school Mariachi Band entertained us one night.|
We have been entertained by a bluegrass band, a cowboy swing band, a blues band, and a drag queen.
|I scared up a hawk on an early morning solo ride.|
|We have a big ole owl living right in our campground.|
We also have rattlesnakes in our campground.
My mountain biking friend, Mark, is the guy responsible for
the capture and relocation of the rattlers.

|Nancy is hiding behind a rather prolific Prickly Pear Cactus.|
|The entire Sonora Desert looks like a giant cactus garden!|

Sorry for the long post, but we really are having a lot of fun here!
