One morning our group of Utah women adventurers decided to do a trek through The Red Hills Desert Garden.
The garden is beautifully designed and we enjoyed discovering some new species like… the Indian fig cactus and the Blackfoot DaisyMy friend Lori had learned about the Joshua Tree on her recent visit to Arizona so she shared her knowledge with the rest of us.
It rained for a bit during our walk but we didn’t let that deter us. And we were rewarded with a beautiful rainbowOne of the knowledgeable garden employees helped us find the dinosaur footprints the park is famous for. They think the kind of dinosaur that made these prints might be a Dilophosaurus. We posed with some of the dinosaur prints.
Our helpful guide suggested we head off on a walk through the Red Cliff Desert Reserve adjacent to the garden. He thought we might spot a tortoise.
We didn’t see a tortoise but we did spot a rabbit and some very interesting rock formations. We also saw beautiful flowers blooming in the desert.
We could have stayed longer but it was soon time to head out to the ball diamond to cheer for our husbands in their next game. We’d had a great morning in the Desert Garden and Desert Reserve.
