On a return from a hike, Steve decided a detour was required to point out another unusually shaped saguaro. Part crested and part the usual and then back again. Another of Nature's marvels.
Perhaps it is Nature's way to introduce some whimsey in a world of sameness.
With all the variety of shapes and arm configuration of saguaros, I continue to search for that artistic version that appears on many Tucson based brochures. The artistic version has only two arms coming from opposite sides and one comes out of the saguaro higher than the other. It is a harmless search and keeps me from looking at my feet all the time when hiking.
