Jim and I took a great 2 hour cruise on the Desert Belle on Saguaro Lake this Sunday.
This 10 mile man-made lake on the Salt River winds thru a canyon, marshland and desert,
which was so beautiful.
We saw lots of birds, herons, hawks, buzzards, shore birds, as well as lots of ducks.
They have a pair of nesting bald eagles which we didn't get a chance to see.
It has one of only 8 known crested saguaros that have been found in Arizona. It is a wonderful way to spend part of an afternoon.
Crested saguaro..when the cacti is damaged this is how some try to heal that damaged area.
