Border Patrol, Cactus and Snow!!
Our next stop on our journey, Tucson, Arizona. On our way, we experienced something totally new and strange to us. While travelling down the expressway, everyone on the expressway had to exit and go thru a border patrol check point! They had xray and infrared equipment to scan your vehicles as you passed by and then we were asked if we had anyone in the fifth wheel! I'm sure that is pretty normal for people living near the border, but we found it quite strange to say the least!!
Once we got to Tucson, we visited the Saguaro National Park. The Saguaro Cactus are found exclusively in the Sonoran Desert. Here's a picture of the desert with mountains in the background.
