We decided together that Boyce Thompson Arboretum would be a good place to show Eldon, so we headed out on Rt 60 toward Superior which is a small town near where the arboretum is located. I've been to the arboretum one time before late in the day when lighting wasn't that good for photography, but today we hit the jackpot. It was perfect weather, and the lighting was excellent for photography, hence a ton of pictures. I love this place and can see returning here numerous times throughout the year to experience different seasons. It's a place that I could come to early in the day and spend an entire day at more than once.

Being from the east Eldon is very fascinated with the desert plants, and I believe that he had a very interesting time here, as did Nancy and I. The drive to and from is also excellent.
