Our good neighbor Melinda, who used to live in Tuscon, suggested we be sure to see the Saguaro National Park and visit the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum while we are here. Today was the day. We approached the park through Grants Pass. As you come over the mountains this gorgeous desert valley dotted with saguaro cacti stretches out for miles.
We arrived at the museum in time to attend one of their free flight lectures. Today's session featured four types of raptors that were set loose while the narrator shared information about them. We watched them fly and hunt for prey while listening. One was a barn owl, so Dad, this one's for you! And many thanks to Melinda for a day we will never forget.
Ann, Doug, Moose, Darla, Sunny, and with gratitude, Winnie and Chinny.
