Very interesting,

I didn't know they had such a skeleton.

Re: Very interesting,

: ) Go ahead and Google "Saguaro rib furniture" to see some of the creations people make for home furnishings and the like from these ribs!

They provide a strong yet somewhat bending support structure for the giant cactus ... they are able to sway in a fairly strong breeze without breaking!

Re: Whoah!

Yessir, you do! One of these times in the spring or fall we'll drag you and Erin down there for some peaks and some rock. You'll think you've died and gone to heaven! Sarah
