  • Saguaro National Park and the Sonoran Desert

    Nestled within southern Arizona in Prima County lies the beautiful and majestic Saguaro National Park and the Sonoran Desert. Consisting of two parts, the Tucson Mountain District and Rincon Mountain District, the park was unified in 1994 and lies 10 miles to the west and 10 miles to the east of Tucson respectively.

    The nearly 92,000 acre national park offers stunning Sonoran Desert landscapes, flora, fauna, wildlife, but most notably the saguaro cactus. 
    The national park was named after these giant cacti that call the area home. The breathtaking saguaro cacti are found nowhere else in the world and are the focus of many of Matt's shirt designs here at MNKR. The Lone Saguaro, Saguaro National Park, Explore the Desert, and Get Lost lines were all inspired by his days spent in the park amongst the cacti. Not only has the national park inspired his designs, but also his tattoos, lifestyle, and appreciation of nature as a whole.

    It is said that the Native Americans that populated the area believed the cacti to be souls of their ancestors. When Matt witnessed the sunset over the national park, it became more than just a day in the desert; it truly became an experience that left a mark.
