I just joined the AZT Association last year and the first meeting I decided to attend was the 25th Anniversary meeting here at the Desert Botanical Garden. It was a great turnout I thot. And for three of our own to get Volunteer Awards (all stewards on the Mazzies section) was way cool. The Dale Showalter video clip (done for a tv station over 20 years ago) at the end was quite special. I wish they could make it public. I did ask but they can't as it belongs to a tv station. Anyway, in case you missed the post in the HAZ Forum about the meeting and ATA: [ Arizona Trail - AWARDS and recognition ]

I saw Denny on my way in and later at lunch. Ambika was there too so we decided to take a short walk through the garden. I was last here in 2007 with my mom. It certainly has grown during that time.

The array of cactus is simply incredible and the garden is nicely kept of course. A lot of the cactus I recognized but a lot I didn't. We took the walk up the hill thru the Organ Pipe and Senitas cactus with views toward Papago Buttes. The pictures tell a better story, much of which you all are familiar with.

Anyway, it was fun to hook up with Denny and Ambika for a nice calm walk through a beautiful garden.

For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination.
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.
