London Bridge, Hidden Valley, Desert Botanical Garden

Yesterday, Jessica and I we drove to Joshua Tree National Park and walked the Hidden Valley Nature Trail which is full of yuccas, cactus, and piles of vast granite boulders. Today, Jessica and I started off with a walk across London Bridge over Lake Havasu, Arizona. The 1830s structure over the River Thames was dismantled and rebuilt in Arizona in 1971. We then drove to the superb Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix where the temperature was 107 degrees Fahrenheit. Tomorrow, we go to the Petrified Forest National Park and Santa Fe. In long stretches of desert driving, we have seen shoe-laden ruins, lizards, birds, chipmunks, rabbits, squirrels (and one big snake) but no roadrunners or tortoises yet. Still hoping to see a roadrunner…
