On New Years Day, we ventured to one of the few places that was actually open. The San Miguel Botanical Gardens.
While a majority of our vacation was on our feet, we were glad we found a taxi to go to this one! I am certain we climbed 1,000 vertical feet up to this area, and it was well worth the $2 taxi ride... (side note - we did walk back home from this adventure, with a pit stop at the market for some snacks!)
The great part about vacations to different areas, is seeing what their "natural settings" contain. As it is a mountainous desert area, there were lots of cacti and other non-Minnesota plants.
Jamie's favorite - succulents
Really tall and wide cactus
Mexico's version of hens and chicks
The man made lake that used to provide water and electricity to the city
Hard to tell from the photo, but the gorge is huge
In the background, pipe that used to bring water to the city
A view of the city in the distance
a bit of art within the park as well
This was a great out of the city spot. They even had a small kids park, so we will be here again for sure!
