The Saguaro cactus at Saguaro Lake, Arizona
These amazing giants are truly breathtaking! The first time I saw them was in the evening, on my drive from Flagstaff to Scottsdale.
I was surprised by how tall they were and how there were so many of them around. Waking up in Scottsdale and going outside and seeing the beautiful desert landscape for the very first time in the morning daylight is an experience that I will never forget. This feeling of landscape beauty and awe stayed with me during my first year in Scottsdale. Every day I couldn’t believe that I lived in such a pretty place, I felt really lucky. Arizona still remains in my heart, and it will stay there forever.
