Looks like a Crime Scene 

You don’t see it very often, but on occasion a saguaro with be blown over during high winds.

This is always a sad sight.  I would guess it to be about 20 feet tall and well over 100 years old.

It’s amazing how shallow their roots for something that weighs more than a couple thousand pounds. 

The only thing missing is a chalk outline.

    1. Thank you, Mountain Goat! The more I spend time in the desert, the more I truly appreciate how amazing the saguaros really are. Despite their size, I also see how fragile they are to their surroundings. Happy Trails, back at you!
