Cactus Garden @ The North Ranch

While staying at the Escapee’s North Ranch RV Park just outside of Congress, AZ we took regular daily walks around the park.  On our first or 2nd time out, we found a real gem that the volunteers here have lovingly developed and cared for over the years.

The Saguaro Cactus Garden has hundreds of different varieties of cactus and other local vegetation.  We took lots of pictures and wanted to share these here.

Check out the largest Saguaro Cactus in the garden that Kathy’s standing in front of, nearly 30 feet tall and experts have estimated it’s age at about 600 years old!  Local birds of various species peck holes in the Saguaro for nesting places.  Click on any of the pictures below to see larger images.

Oklahoma City Botanical Gardens (Myriad Gardens)

So, having enjoyed our evening at the Courtyard hotel in downtown OKC, we knew we had more time to “kill” waiting on the water pump replacement, so we journeyed on down the street to Myriad Gardens, OKC’s beautiful outdoor and indoor botanical garden.  Here’s some pix of our time spent there.  Notice they have a GREAT outdoor fun park for the little ones.  Although the  “pavement” might look hard, it’s actually real cushy rubber so when the kids take a tumble they won’t get hurt.
