Our group trip to the Living Desert resulted in many exciting scenes of spring growth, animal behavior, and even a few animal babies! The Living Desert in Palm Desert, CA provides a beautiful landscape and living space for many desert creatures, both exotic and familiar to our region. The natural setting feels both wild and kept, a contradiction, I know, but one that truly tugs at the imagination! The entire environment provides candy for the soul if you so happen to love the desert, as I do.

Though it warmed up as the day wore on, the weather was agreeable, and the occasional cloud made for a wonderful backdrop to several photos. The gardens peppered throughout the park deserve a trip of their own, and one could easily visit for the animals alone. All in all, one single trip to the Living Desert never seems like enough.
