Such a magnificent place and so much to see! Some say it’s like a live, desert zoo, with such diversity and abundant in life.

Let us share the beauty of this beautiful desert oasis with you. We can go by bike or hike, it’s your adventure and Southwest Trekking is here to help make lasting memories.

Nature’s Humor -Crested Saguaro

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

Nature has the best sense of humor just like the best guides in the Tucson valley, Southwest Trekking Professional Guiding Team!

This is by far my favorite Crested Saguaro I’ve seen. From a distance this one looks like a Giraff.

Getting a closer look reveals the complexity of its design.
