Scenic photo: Mutated Saguaro at San Tan Trail

(Photo by Maile Alday)

“While on a hike with my dog on Rock Peak Trail Wash and taking the San Tan Trail east, we found a bench in the middle of nowhere. While sitting and taking photos to my surprise there was this mutated Saguaro. OMG I found it, I was ecstatic. It made my day,” Queen Creek photographer Maile Alday said in an e-mail.
