Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"

The Saguaro Cactus is a protected plant in Arizona. The statute states that "it is unlawful for any person to destroy, dig up, mutilate, collect, cut, harvest or take any living highly safeguarded native plant...". Obviously, the people using this one for target practice, didn't get the message. I remember many years ago when a man was using a saguaro for target practice and it toppled over and fell on him killing him. Mother nature sometimes loses her sense of humor.
