On Friday, we had a fourth grade field trip to the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum. It is located down by Tucson. I had never been there, so I was very excited to go. It was beautiful. The scenery was spectacular. It was a mix of a botanical garden and a zoo. Not only did they have beautiful plants, but they also had an aviary, bat caves, mountain goats, snakes, mountain lions and even a bear.
The kids had a great time. There were a number of hiccups, but all in all, the trip went well.
If you are ever in AZ, I highly recommend visiting the ASDM. It was gorgeous and really showed the desert landscape at its most beautiful.
