It’s been way too long since I talked about somewhere I traveled besides the Arizona Renaissance Festival. The reason is because I really don’t go anywhere fun and, if I do, I don’t normally like to bring my camera. I’ve tried taking my camera and photos before, but it never worked out right. Since I’ve had my fill of fabric design post, I wanted to talk about somewhere I traveled to and took photos of.
In October, I went to the Boyce Thompson Arboretum. The Boyce Thompson Arboretum was established in the 1920’s and is the oldest and largest arboretums in the state of Arizona. It is located outside of Superior, Arizona. There are hiking trails in the park along with gardens with different themes such as cactus, South American, Australian, and a garden with plants that attract butterflies and humming birds.
If you are interested in learning more about the Boyce Thompson Arboretum or go there yourself, you can read more about it and it’s history at it’s website here or at the Arizona State Park’s website here.
And now, onto the photos!
Out of all the photos I took, my favorites are of the humming bird…
I didn’t think I would be able to take photos of a humming bird, but after a few failed attempts to take photos of the butterflies, I decided to try the humming bird. I’m so happy they turned out so well and you can see the humming bird so clearly!
