This morning's sunrise was a good start for the day.
We decided to visit the nearby Saguaro National Park.
Most of the drive through the park is on a dirt road but you are surrounded by cactus.
The CCC worked in the park making the trails, walkways, original road and buildings.
It is a pretty park in its own way. Notice the unique wood surrounding the supports for the picnic cover? It is the ribs from the saguaro cactus that has died.
One stop along the drive was "Signal Hill". The rocks on the hill have petroglyphs from the native people who traveled through this area. The flowers that just bloomed are from the ocotillo cactus.
There was the expected warning sign. It's a desert so no surprise.
