I REALLY needed my afternoon walk yesterday! It was a rough day at school and I needed to "depressurize"! When I got to the Living Desert, I headed toward the African village to see what was new there. I always love to walk by the wart hog exhibit. They now have little statues in front of their enclosure and one of them was busy taking a siesta! Who wouldn't? It was about 82 degrees yesterday and the sun felt SO GOOD!!! I opted to not wear my denim long-sleeved shirt and try to stick to shady areas, just to feel the warm sun. I also love to walk by their little railroad exhibit. It's a great place for the kids to stop and look at all the trains. There is even a miniature Grand Canyon as part of the train exhibit! And, now there are tents for overnight camping at the Living Desert! When I was there yesterday, the African cattle were making quite a bit of noise. I guess they wanted their afternoon meal! Look at the horns on this one! It was a great afternoon to be outdoors!
