Arizona sycamore – Platanus wrightii

We came across many of these gorgeous Arizona sycamores on the banks of the few creeks that are running right now. I expect they are stunning in leaf as well, hopefully I’ll have the chance to see them on a later trip.

    I love the bark of sycamore trees. We have quite a few in New England and they remind me of modern art jigsaw puzzles.

    Hi Lynn,

    They sure do look like jigsaw puzzles. Might be fun to make one from the photographs!

    This is the first time I recall seeing them although I must have years ago.
