Desert Botanical Gardens

During Scott's break between semesters we went to the Desert Botanical Gardens. There were a lot of beautiful plants and quite a bit of wildlife. They have several different trails you can hike, one of which is a butterfly garden. We love us some butterflies!

Can you spot the animals hiding in the collage below? I think it is so amazing how the animals blend into the desert. It was exciting for the kids whenever we would spot an animal or slithering creature.

Here you can see how tall some of the saguaros were. The kids look tiny compared to those huge cacti!

The kids are watching a squirrel. It was awesome how close we were able to get to the little guy.

Say cheese!
