Photo Tour of “The Living Desert”

The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens, formerly the Living Desert Museum, is a desert botanical garden and a zoo located in Palm Desert, California — visit its website www.livingdesert.org/. I was there recently while on a 17-day road trip, and I had a great guided tour conducted by a local who is also a 40+ year friend. Here are some of the many photos I took while there, and I’ll keep the words to a minimum. Enjoy the photos!
