Worlds Largest Cactus Apr 07, 2008
Just south of the town of San Felipe is a cactus "forest" of the worlds largest cactus in the Valley of the Giants natural preserve. The Cardon Cactus are well over 70 feet high. Indigenous to Northern Baja California the Cardon Cactus forest is the Mexican desert equivalent of the California Redwoods.

The scenery in the Valley of Giants is spectacular. There is a small entrance fee and you do need to have a four-wheeled drive to see the entire preserve. A two-wheeled drive car can get you to the first rest stop where you can get out and walk around but you won't be able to see all the "named cactus" without the all terrain vehicle.
Can I reach the top?
Seriously big.
I'm ready for my close up.
Stereotypes anyone?
