Home to the country’s largest cacti, Saguaro National Park is located in Pima County in southeastern Arizona. The park is divided in to two districts, the Rincon Mountain District located in the East and the Tucson Mountain District located in the West. While the two districts bear a great likeness in terms of their landscape, however, they are quite different.
Saguaro West is home to dense saguaro forests that rise from the hillside filled with low desert grasslands, shrubs and densely populated saguaro forests, whereas, Saguaro Eat is a parkland with conifer forests and wildflowers.
The park sees a rise in temperature in the summer. Temperature usually soars above 100 degrees, which is why most people visit the park during the winter, usually in the months of January, February and March.
