Sonoran Desert Scene March 11 ’09
Kofa Nat’l Wildlife Refuge is fully in the Sonoran desert of Arizona, identified mainly by the imposing Saguaro, the ubiquitous cactus of upraised arms in “Roadrunner & Wily Coyote” cartoons and “Arizona Highways” pictures.
The Saguaro is a fascinating plant. We are here too early in the season to see the flowers which bloom at night, but if you’re interested in more info. click here.
