An early morning visit to Saguaro National Park near Tucson, AZ, USA. The park is named for the iconic symbols of the Old West that grow there.

Sunrise is a great time to visit since the birds are chirping and busy foraging before it gets hot. A jack rabbit may go hopping by and coyotes will dart across the road as you drive in the dark.
