Birthday walk in the park

Last Wednesday was my birthday. I decided to take the day off and spend the morning at our Desert Museum. Although I didn’t find many animal photo opps, it was a beautiful morning, a comfortable temperature, and I got some great nature photos. Happy Day 😊

    Gorgeous photos. Though it is very beautiful here, I do miss the desert landscape at times, so appreciate these pics very much. I always say there is a certain majesty to the desert. Quotes are also awesome. Happy belated birthday, Lisa! πŸŽ‰πŸ₯³πŸŽ‚πŸ’›

    1. Thank you, Jeff! My favorite place is the beach, but I have a love for the warm, dry, open desert landscape. All the sun (almost every day of the year) makes me happy 😊 And thanks for the happy wishes!
