... porcupine, bobcat, all sorts of birds including one walk-through aviary dedicated exclusively to hummingbirds, and spiders, scorpions and snakes.

After walking in the hot sun and strong wind for a couple of hours, we hunkered down in the restaurant on site, had a nice meal, took full and ...
... Lexus, BMWs on the road in the real world. The kids worked at getting good with finding information we need on the iPad (something I never had on road trips.) They did NOT love Date Shakes from Dateland (something I did have on road trips!)
