The problem I've always had with getting to that canyon in the past is that by the time I get close, I'm too tired. I hadn't approached it from the angle I was going to try this time, though.
As it turned out, that was one of the worst approaches I've tried. I kept encountering bigger obstacles until I decided I was tired enough. Then I decided to see if I could find a crested saguaro I had seen in that area before. Amazingly, I remembered almost exactly where it was.
There was another strange looking saguaro I had seen out there years ago. I couldn't find it on this hike, though. I may go back soon just to look for it. Click below to see all of the pictures.
