The other day we took a drive on the outskirts of Surprise. Much of Surprise is still rural but the area is growing fast. The prediction is that Surprise will grow 10 times it's current population of 60,000 in the next 10 years. New homes are popping up everywhere.
I love how the road splits around the saguaro cactus. I had to take a picture. It is illegal in Arizona to harm a saguaro in any way.
