    Fondest memory: They also have a desert zoo. These here are, if I remember correctly, prairie dogs (separated from the visitors by glass etc). You´ll find mountain lions, bobcats, all kinds of wild birds of prey and lots more...

    Fondest memory: The Cactus Gardens. You´ll find most of the spiny creatures growing in the wilderness - and it´s HERE that you can see them up close without having to 'go bush'. Plus you´ll learn about their names and specific needs.

    Favorite thing: Go to the Desert Museum. This is really a zoo/nature preserve. It has a fantastic hummingbird exhibit, and it has Coatis..and you will only find them down here! The staff are friendly and knowledgable, and it really is the easiest way to see real desert wildlife up close..but don't go when it's 100 degrees out..there is an awful lot of walking!

    Fondest memory: My fiance propsed to me here..I made my first 'American friend' here. When I am not here I miss the sunshine, and the birds..

    Favorite thing: The Desert Museum is fantastic.

    Fondest memory: The monsoons in the latter part of summer are amazing. There are huge lightning storms that fill the sky and dramatic monsons that cool off the valley about 20 degrees in an instant.

    LOCAL  ART  IN  ASDM

    Favorite thing: Look at my picture, please. This is one more example of local art, I suppose. Less beautiful drawing in my opinion, although... What do you think?

    POTTERY  IN  ASDM

    Favorite thing: There is less beautiful pottery exhibited in Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum (ASDM) as well. Just my opinion. Look at my picture, please. Am I wrong?

    ME  AND  GIANT  SAGUARO

    Favorite thing: You can find really giant saguaros in Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. They are much taller than me, as you can see on my picture. The largest are 4-story building tall.
