The Living Desert

We went to Palm Springs this past weekend to visit Patrick’s great aunt because her 100th birthday is coming up on Wednesday. While there, we went to the Living Desert which is actually in Palm Desert and is basically (among other things) a zoo for desert animals. It was pretty neat all around but I have to say my favorite part was probably the giraffe and ostrich section. More specifically, the giraffes. They are so elegant and graceful and beautiful. I just couldn’t get enough of them.

Here’s one roaming around the Living Desert. The sun was shining but it was getting later in the day so it was warmer than normal. I’ll try to get a little gallery of pics from the day up soon. In the meantime…

    Not every day you get to take a shot like THAT Jenny! I love that he’s off center and the layers of landscape going off into the distance behind him. Nice one.
