The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum is a Tucson Treat

We visited The Sonora Desert Museum, outside of Tucson,  a number of years ago and found it to be a superior facility to experience desert fauna and flora without the rigors of tramping out into the back country.  The paths are smooth and seats are available when you tire.  There is a fine and reasonably priced restaurant where you can get a meal or just a cold drink.   And it is a photographer's paradise.
When we returned this year it had lost none of its luster. 

For flowers.





For desert landscapes.






For humming birds and prairie dogs.





And the stars of the whole operation remain the amazing raptors that come screaming and swooping in on their trainer's calls.  Immmmmmpressssssive!















Y'all come if you can.
