This Saguaro has a mutant headThis is the view from my back window on the motor homes magnet view

The inside of a dead Saguaro and the man is showing the tiny little seeds that are no bigger than a poppy seed, produce these huge cacti

Another look at the inside of the Saguaro this one has a heart shape to it

Screech Owl he looks so cute and tame NOT

You find these odd things places around you must always be on the look out

This thick billed parrot was such a clown and he really thought he was having a conversation with you.
There are all these beautiful sculptures all around the grounds

Prairie Dogs are very amusing guys, they had to put a steel net over this enclosure to keep hawks from swooping down and grabbing them up for dinner

This kit fox is in his den taking a snooze. I couldn't believe how small he was

I have a better shot of this Cardinal I will post tomorrow

Until tomorrow that's it for now.
Hope you enjoy


  1. I'm so glad you put these pictures on. I've always heard of the Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum, but never had the chance to visit there.
    I normally don't leave comments on blogs, but this entry made me feel that I should let you know that I am a regular reader of your blog. I've enjoyed all the pictures you've put on here, and enjoyed your opinion on all of your travel destinations.
