This is the Sonoran desert

When you think of the desert, do you think of bright colours? In the Sonoran desert of Arizona, shades of green are common – thanks to the numerous plants such as cactus, that cover the landscape:

In Tucson, I got to experience the Sonoran Desert Museum – and unlike any museum that comes to mind, this one is outside – showcasing the desert from its inhabitants to its plants, fruit and flowers. Visitors can walk the trails to discover the desert:

And as the museum reveals its treasures, there’s plenty of things to learn as well as time to be in the desert and understand how diverse it is:

Tomorrow, I’m back on the food trail of the desert and the state – promise many photos of tasty treats….
