Today I have a few images of the old "Living Desert" area within Nature's Wonderland. They're not that great, I know, but they're better than a fork in your eye.
Rocks. Big rocks. Big funny looking rocks! Some say that these strange formations were created by aliens as landmarks for a landing strip. We welcome you, oh alien Overlords!
Saguaro cactus were voted "Most Popular Cacti" in a 1968 issue of LOOK magazine. The competition was fierce, let me tell you. Barrel cactus, pipe organ cactus, and screaming cactus were all in the running. But they are all losers! Let's laugh at them! Or we can just appreciate the beauty of this scene. The desert is looking very lush in this photo, there must have been some recent rains.
