From downtown to the desert

Tucson trolley

A portion of the Sonoran Desert seen from Sagaro National Park
TUCSON, AZ - - Driving through Old Town Tucson on our way to Saguaro National Park we were passed by a trolley.  Strange to see rail road tracks down the streets.  Tucson  also has real busses running on the same streets.
     We've been to the NP the last time we were here two years ago, but decided to go back for another look.  It's still dry desert, a lot of different cactus (the tall ones are the saguaro),  and lots of hardy bush.  The denizens of the desert had figured it was too hot and stayed hidden.
     Some parks are big, some are small.  And then there's Saguaro which has two parts...East and West.  We visited the West park.
