Art and Cacti

Spent the day walking around the Heard Native American Art Museum.

Really neat art. I would have taken photos, but I can't seem to figure out how to turn off the flash.

We left there after a great lunch in the outdoor cafe (yep, eating outside in January)
and headed to the Desert Botanical Garden.

It was a bit overcast, but still a great day to walk the gardens. Great examples of cacti from all parts of the southwest. That being said, the trail ride and hike yesterday through the Sonoran Desert was truely a highlight so far.

Now for a bit of funny stuff. As we were driving along on a four lane road, there were signs suddenly that forced us to merge into a single lane both directions.
The sign on the right said "Stay left".
The sign on the left said "Stay right".
The signs were about 10 feet down the road from each other. It was a bit disconcerting as you moved to the left and then were told to move to the right when all we needed to be told was that the lane narrowed! I guess there are some people here who just don't know how to drive through construction.
