I went to the Saguaro national Park this morning, and got in free with my Geezer Pass. It was enjoyable but I've been sharing my Boondocking spots with Saguaros for several months, so it wasn't as interesting as it would've been had I not been living with them for so long.
The weather was perfect, 70°, puffy clouds in a blue sky, and only a slight breeze, it couldn't of been better. But I was a bit disappointed that the saguaros did not have many blooms yet. There were lots of buds on the tops but there was only a flower here and there, I guess its not time yet.
There are several hiking trails in the park that look interesting but I w̶a̶s̶ ̶t̶o̶o̶ ̶l̶a̶z̶y̶ ̶ wasn't equipped to go hiking. So I just drove around on the dirt roads and stopped wherever I saw a nice picture.

Getting close enough to smell the flowers is not a good idea
