Saguaro National Park East

Years and years ago when we first moved to Tucson, the first national park we visited was Saguaro National Park East (there’s an east park and a west park). We revisit every once in a while for biking but this time around we brought family on the drive through the 8-mile Cactus Forest Scenic Loop Drive… and to take photos in ties before they were cut off at Pinnacle Peak.
