Hi! My name is Kathy and I live in northern Minnesota, USA, where the winter temps have dipped down to -60º below zero F. The summers used to be mild but in recent years have been up in the 90ºs---too hot for me. I love being able to travel the world from my office chair, through all your great photos! I've learned tons about photography and editing photos thanks to all the great people on here and their willingness to share tips. Thank you to all you Wunderfriends who take time to look and leave notes---I deeply appreciate it. :-)free hit countersCreate your own visitor map!

Caption: Just like we wear our bones on the inside, with our soft muscle and skin outside, Saguaros have "ribs" of hard strong wood inside, with soft flesh on the outside. They're amazingly strong, holding up several tons of "body"! Birds and animals burrow into the outer flesh to make nests and burrows--the Saguaro simply grows scar tissue around it and keeps on growing upward. There can be many holes in the arms by the time it's full grown.
