This crested saguaro sits along Bates Well Road in the northern parts of Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. From what I could see, it has at least 5 “Y” formations.
My wife spotted this crested saguaro along the road while we were exploring the recently-opened eastern section of Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. It was later in the evening, about 30 minutes before the sun went down. We had taken a wrong turn a few hours before and ended up on Bates Well Road instead of Puerto Blanco Road. No matter, it was still beautiful and we were blessed to see this crested saguaro.
