Papago Park

Papago Park in Phoenix, Arizona is located near the Phoenix Zoo, Desert Botanical Garden and the hole in the rock.  You can hike, climb, photograph your heart out (wink wink), grill, picnic, fish (fish? in the desert?) and feed the duckies and other water fowl.  An awful lot to do before it gets too hot I would say.  I would never have imagined fishing and ducks swimming around this area with all of the cactus and palm trees but like an oasis in the desert here’s this little pond where there were people fishing, hanging around, feeding the ducks – and one very happy photographer and her sherpa 😉

As cute as the baby duckies were, the guy with the curled tail feather was my favorite.  Dude had duck swagger!

    Poor drake. A cowlick can be so embarrassing.
    Looks like a great park to visit throughout the year. Thanks, Teri.
