  • This is one of my favorite spots in the valley. Another visitor called us over to see a malachite butterfly. What a beautiful green color and rate find.
  • The guy at the front desk showed me this cool shirt that changes colors in the sun, bought it instantly, he was so nice and didn’t make me feel bad for accidentally dropping one of his shirt displays. He then proceeded to tell me and my bf how the winter freeze killed all the plants but nonetheless we still saw lively birds and butterflies. It was truly a magical experience. This was last March. Can’t wait to visit again!!
