OK so we didn't head down the road today and we never went to town last night every one was to tired. So we made the executive decision to stay another day.
So today we went to El Charco Del Ingenio ( Botanical Garden )
The plants are all from Mexico. So most were Cactus. Some were pretty spectacular.
They had trails threw the property. This is a large park there is a man made lake. I think the lake was the water supply for the city at one time but not anymore. They had a bunch of benches along the trails.
This was the biggest grasshopper I have ever seen. It had to be 3 to 4 inches long. It was sitting on Caster Beans. And the girls collected a bunch of them I said isn't that what they make poison out of and they both laughed so I said are you trying to kill me off and they both said you better keep in line or you might find out. So from now on eat or drink nothing that they give me.
This is below the dam.
Came across another one of these California squirrels.
Lara at the edge of a cliff it was only about a 30 foot drop.
I loved the color of this moss didn't come out as good with the camera.
And a red dragonfly.
They sure look serious
Brenda getting brave walking to edge
This cross was about 30 feet down to it or 20 feet from the bottom someone went to a lot of work to put it there.
I talke Lara into going ahead and standing on the edge of the cliff it was about 100 feet to the bottom but this is as close as she would get.
There is a pool down there and the sign says it all nothing I can add
Pictures do this no justice.
I even know the name of this one it a Barrel cactus used to make candy
The happy girl on the bench
At the end of the park you can look out over the city.
Tomorrow its down the road
