Saguaro National Park is a large two section park, East & West of Tucson, Arizona, USA. Rincon Mountain District in the East is inundated with the large Saguaro Cacti and so the Park is apply named. The Desert Squirrels abound here & I spent hours chasing them without a successful capture to be had. But I did see a great many things in these Desert Cacti Gardens.
