This old stonehouse is about 1/2 way along the easy but rocky trail.
The Stonehouse Trail is in the Saguaro National Park in a section that is not often used.
Trailheads are located off of Ajo Way before the Mission Road intersection.in Tucson,AZ.

At the end of the trail you will find this old foundation...

I love my walks with my fuzzy butted pups!!
We find the darnedest things !!
This plant may look like it’simage

from Mars but, it grows right here in Arizona!
Honest!!!
It is an Aloe Vera blooming in a twistie strange way…perhaps because it is under a low tree branch!!??
I am sure the flower will be an electric red…just like a “normal” Aloe Vera :
Let ya know…….

The Century Plant.
Here it is just growing it’s stalk.The blooms will be several feet higher at the very top once the stalk reaches full height..kinda like umbrella shapes.
It only blooms once every hundred years or so…once it blooms….it dies.
I will be back to show you pix of all its’ glory!!
