21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Saguaro, Sunset in the Sonoran Desert

A tall saguaro cactus, icon of the Sonoran Desert, stands in the evening light with the Superstition Mountains behind. I walk this trail almost everyday, in all kinds of weather, and am quite familiar with many of the plants and some of the individual animals, and the view never fails to amaze me.
