– Scottsdale Saguaro Humor –
If you have ever driven up the Scottsdale scenic corridor in North Scottsdale, you have likely seen the markers that indicate what type of plant or tree you are seeing. These markers are a wonderful way to familiarize yourself with the local desert plants.
As we were coming down Scottsdale Road the other day, a sign caught my eye, I did a double take and laughed out loud. I am guessing the folks at Mac Donald’s Ranch were the ones who did this and it is great.
At first glance, it does not look like much…
But if you look a little closer…
Now I am sorry about the demise of the saguaro, but this addition to the sign was pretty clever.
Want to see it in person? If you are going southbound on Scottsdale Road, it is just south of Jomax on your right, near the entrance to Mac Donald’s Ranch.
