National Park Mystery Photo 24: Kinda Spindly, Ain't It?

What the heck is it, and where can you see it?

We don't want to be too revealing with this Mystery Photo, for that just might give it away. But we will tell you it's bigger than a breadbox. More tomorrow for those who have no idea what this might be.


The top of a deceased saguaro cactus - most probably in Saguaro National Park

Alas, this is no consummate stumper, as Marty has corrected guessed what this is. But to give others a shot, we're gonna sit on his answer for a little while.

Could it be the top of one of the teepee frames along the Big Hole River in the Big Hole National Battlefield Monument?

Good guess, Karyn, but I'm afraid not.

Is this the top of a Saguaro skeleton? Saguaro National Park?

Congrats to Marty and Patti, who both correctly guessed what the photo shows and where it was taken. Tomorrow we'll fill in the details.

I had a feeling. Oh how I do miss the Sonoran Desert!
