We had a great time Tuesday exploring the Tucson Desert Museum with Tina and Vance, our niece and her husband. They are spending this month in Arizona in the RV and we decided to meet at the museum.
I saw something new before we even paid our entrance fee. A cell phone charging station!
The museum has a number of Sonoran Desert native animals. I sure wouldn't want to encounter this mountain lion on a hike.
This black bear would be equally as frightening.
This is a wolf.
Here is a cold, wet roadrunner.
This mountain sheep ram kept butting this log, then licking it. We couldn't figure out why.
The Rufus hummingbird was one of several in the aviary.
Of course, a desert museum also includes cactus, lots and lots of cactus plants.
We were most impressed with the cactus gardens in Tucson. The animals were interesting. And we had an enjoyable lunch in the on-site grill.
