Some Arizona Scenes

In addition to visiting New Mexico, 
we stayed at vacation rental in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Our vacation rental

Arizona sunset
Hiking in the Sonoran desert

Visited the Southwest Wildlife Conservatory
where we saw many wild animals being rehabbed,
like this lynx.

 A fox

Even a kudamundi!

So that's how they transplant a giant saguaro cactus!

White Sands National Monument

Also in New Mexico, is another wonderful national monument.

White Sands, a sandy playground!

Although it was cold and this looks like snow,
its really tons of white sand!

Piles & piles of sand

 And because of all this light white gypsum sand, 
the picnic shelters have windscreens!

Sand high enough to sled on!

 It has a wonderful visitor center too.
Don't skip this.

Come & have fun playing in the sand!
