We saw these cacti everywhere in Arizona, but they were especially thick here along the Metati Trail near Cave Creek. We also encountered a section of very old and tall suguaro (suh-WAHR-oh) but they were more spread out and harder to photograph. They can grow to be over 40 feet tall! These younger suguaro are still pretty old; they don't grow arms for over 70 years. The scars along the sides are little holes where small birds nest. I love this shade of sage green, and it seems like all the plants around here tend toward a really pretty sage color.
