Love the saguaro! Only a small area of the world where you can see them...

It certainly looks like a saguaro, but that's actually a cardon.  It has fewer ribs than the saguaro, more branches, grows larger, and there are a few other differences.

Cool, I didn't know that. I had wondered if saguaro grew that far south.

When I first saw cardons in the Baja several years ago, I would have sworn they were saguaro, but our guide corrected me on that impression.  Apparently saguaro are limited to the Sonora desert around Arizona and the northern Mexico state of Sonora.  The cardon are stretch from Baja into Sonora, and are the world's largest cacti.

I could believe the second shot from the bottom in the last post (above the Cardons, here hee) was taken in the Middle East.

That's the Iglesia de Nuestra Seora del Pilar (Our Lady of Pilar Church) in Todos Santos, Baja.  It's right around the corner and maybe half a block away from the Hotel California.
