Desert Days- Tucson

Arizona– God’s country

Questing for desert flowers- wild cactuses and succulents.

I began my trip in Tucson and made my way to Green Valley. I went through Sahuarita and then came to Dragoon and Cochise. There are many beautiful and unique fields of cactus patches within The Sonoran Desert. The Sonoran Desert offers tremendous views of desert landscapes and vegetation.

There are many desert cactus varieties to see at Tucson Mountain Park, The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, and Saguaro National Park. I took the scenic route through Tucson Cactus Forest Drive and was in desert heaven!
