Am ersten Tag zog es uns wieder in die Natur. Der Desert Botanical Garden beherbergt unzählige Kakteen und Agaven in den unterschiedlichsten Sorten. Dort kann man durchaus schon mal ein paar Stunden mit Herumschlendern und Staunen verbringen. Hier war es sogar von Vorteil, dass im September nichts mehr los ist, denn dadurch hatten wir genug Ruhe. Das regnerische Wetter tat dabei sicher sein Übriges. Wobei die Regentropfen bei über 30°C durchaus erfrischend waren.Read more
Nach dem selbstgekochten Mittag-/Abendessen machten wir uns mal wieder auf ins Autokino, diesmal ins West Wind Drive In, einer Kette statt einem kleinen Familienunternehmen. Dadurch gab 9 verschiedene Filmkonstellationen zur Auswahl. Bei uns stand „Morgan“ und „Sausage Party“ auf dem Programm.Read more
After being fortified with lunch, we decided it was time to launch our trek through the desert full of cactus. There was an amazing number and variety of cactus as we wandered through the gardens. Fortunately, most of the cactus were labelled multiple times, so by the end of the walk we (and by we I mean Heather) were starting to become familiar with some of the cactus. There were a few cactus that we never did find out what they were, but we felt that we could leave something for next time.Read more
We had a bit of trouble getting started this morning. So as we started out, we decided that perhaps the best place to start our days exploring was someplace with food. So off we went to Gertrudes at the Desert Botanical Gardens. I very much enjoyed my $17 hamburger. Heather had a $16 chicken salad wrap that she swears had some cactus in it.
There was a cute quail hanging out around the tables waiting for some food. It tried to get a photo, but he never left the shadows and was invisible in the photos.Read more
