Sonoran Desert Scenes

The Sonoran Desert roughly covers the southenmost third of Arizona, a small portion of California and a fairly large portion of Baja California in Mexico. It's best known for being the only place in the world where the famous Saguaro cactus grows. It is also a popular place to be in the spring when sufficient winter rains bring about wildflower blooms. This gallery is dedicated to all scenes Sonoran. You may be surprised to see a fair amount of water features in this gallery. These lakes are not natural, but come about due from man-made dams on the few perennial rivers that flow through the region.
