To my mind, there's something very odd about the vegetation in the foreground in this photo. In all the years I spent in the Sonoran desert, I've never seen so many juvenile saguaro growing in such a dense concentration, naturally. Do you know if those were purposefully planted?

It's possible there was a fire in this immediate area many years ago. I had not thought about the small saguaro, but I suspect they probably sprouted on their own. I honestly can't say for sure. I took this photo a few hundred feet south of the camping area, basically on a random walk.

Well then, that's pretty cool.
But unfortunately, now that I think of it, maybe that's the sort of spot that cactus poachers target.
