Today, my son Chad and his darling soulmate and life partner, Gina and I visited the Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum just west of Tucson. This site is a world renowned zoo, natural museum and botanical garden all in one place.
The mission of the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum is to inspire people to live in harmony with the natural world by fostering love, appreciation and understanding of the Sonoran Desert.
In the photos above, you will see us enjoying this enjoyable experience, along with some photos of the critters(Western screech owl) and young people practicing as young paleontologists. The station wagon in the picture is from 1952, which marked the opening of the museum. In a few words, if you are in Tucson, don't miss coming to this wonderful attraction.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
