Desert Botanical Garden

Chihuly structures before entering
the Garden

In addition to watching baseball and eating food, we also visited the amazing Desert Botanical Garden while we were in Phoenix, thanks to a tip from our good friend Vicki J. Not only is the garden beautiful, it's located just east of the downtown area, at the intersection of Priest and Van Buran, two of the main streets in Phoenix. Can you imagine such a sight in the middle of L.A.?
