One afternoon we decided to go to Saguaro National Park. As we entered the park we started seeing groups of saguaro and lots of chollas ( Even if they look cuddly do not mess with them. It hurts). Just as we arrived at the visitor center a ranger lead program was starting. We joined them and learned a little about cactuses. I learned that if they get too cold there arms droop. When it warms up they start to grow toward the sun again. That’s what causes the funny shapes they make. After the program was over we worked on our Junior Ranger Books. When we finished we handed them in and received a badge. Then we headed over to the Gould Canyon trail head and hiked. The hike started in a wash and soon we reached a natural dam. We then reached the top and started going down. Over all it was a 2.4 mile hike. I enjoyed visiting Saguaro National Park.
