I love to see the these giants of the desert when we visit Arizona. I saw one of these with the crest at the top once and was so sad I didn't have my camera. I know they are very rare.
Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.

They are wonderful, and I had the same experience, Jean. We were out in the desert and saw one, but no camera. They are very rare.
