Seguaro National Park in the Spring

On the return journey from Florida I stopped amongst other places Seguaro National park. I hadn't planned to be there at the best time of year but I had happened upon spring.
The park is actually split into 2 halfs, one east and one west of Tuscon. I've flown over the western half in the Arizona meet. The East side seems quite a bit bigger and was in flower!
I think this is the pencil cholla.

Big Seguaro !
The park was just off the Interstate - I was happy for a couple of hour out of the truck. The flowers were amazing.
