Sun, sun, everywhere
The average high temperature across the Sonoran Desert is 105 degrees F (41 degrees C) and its average low temperature is 73 degrees F (23 degrees C). The average June precipitation is zilch — basically 0.00 inches (0.00 centimeters).
The most predominate feature of the Sonoran Desert during the month of June is, without doubt, intense sunlight!
Thriving in the desert
Just before the extreme temperatures of June — during the months of April and May — these two sentinels of the Sonoran Desert bath the desert in floral beauty with an explosion of millions of cream-colored flowers, like the saguaro blooms shown here.
The pollination of saguaro and cardon flowers is crucial not only for the two cacti but for the entire ecological system of the Sonoran Desert.
