The Cardón cactus (Pachycereus pringlei) is one of the most massive members of the cacti family. All 1200 species of cactus are native to the Americas. The Cardónes can measure over 70 feet in height and weigh over 25 tons. These plants grow very slowly and can live over 300 years. Cardónes are not saguaros. They are not even a related species. Cardónes grow in the Mexican states of Baja California and Baja California Sur. There are also a few stands of the cactus in the states of Sonora and Sinaloa. The Cardón can be found at sea level up to about 3200 feet in elevation from near El Rosario in the north, to the tropical Cape region at the southern tip of Baja California Sur. The main trunk of the Cardón may have as many as 25 vertical branches, up to 5 feet in diameter. These Cardónes are in the Desert Botanical Garden near Phoenix, Arizona.

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
