Just how old is that cactus? How much rain does the desert get? Can a rattlesnake kill me?
Arizona’s Sonoran Desert is an untamed landscape. It is the hottest desert in the United States but it’s also the most tropical which means it’s rich in plant and animal life despite the rugged terrain. A visit to Arizona wouldn’t be complete without taking in views of the giant saguaro cactus (carnegia gigantea), hiking among jumping cholla cactus, or floating down one of the indispensable desert rivers in a raft or kayak.
