All in a Day's Work

We had a college intern at the park the other day and I got to show him around to get an idea as to the scope of Papago Park. There's a lot more to Papago than meets the eye. The Zoo, Botanical Gardens, Municipal Stadium, Hall of Flame Museum, and Papago Golf Course are all part of Papago Park. Anyhow, it was nice to visit all these things showing him around. We ended the tour at Tovrea's Castle, not part of Papago Park, but City owned and in the process of renovations.

Something new at the Desert Botanical Gardens - I like this one.

Always fun to look up at the giant cardons

The view from the top of Tovrea's Castle

And from the cactus gardens below looking up.
