Last week, I shared pictures from our visit to the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge in Arivaca, Arizona. As I mentioned, we ran into some locals on our walk who suggested we head south to see the other end of the wildlife refuge.
After lunch at a local cantina, that is just what we did. We drove down to within a stone’s throw of the southern border. This part of the park is more developed–in Arivaca, it was just a series of trails. Here, there was a lovely visitors center. We happened to come on the day that the volunteers were having their appreciation potluck. Yet, they were kind enough to take a break from the festivities to show us around and direct us on a hike the kids would enjoy. And, once we returned, they even let the kids partake in their desert table!
