Exploring Arizona- Boyce Thompson Arboretum

I’m so happy I get to write this post because I’ve wanted to travel more often. This is actually one of the reasons why I created this blog, to force myself (Or take the initiative) to travel. I was unable to go anywhere because of the weather and my normal job kept me busy, but on October 22, 2017, I went to the Boyce Thompson Arboretum!

The Boyce Thompson Arboretum is located outside of Superior, Arizona. The arboretum was established in the 1920’s and is the oldest and largest arboretums in the state of Arizona. There are hiking trails in the park along with gardens with different themes.

I’ve been to this arboretum quite a lot when I was younger, but it’s been so many years since I’ve been there that I don’t remember much about it. Because of this, on this trip I decided to take less photos I would have normally would have. That way I could explore the arboretum and enjoy it more than obsessively taking great photos. I did take many photos that I’m proud of, but for the most part I would walk around and think “This cactus/trail/mountain/building looks familiar to me but I don’t remember why.” I plan on going back one day, but I think I’ll end up not taking many photos again just so I could try remember it at a slower pace.

If you are interested in learning more about the Boyce Thompson Arboretum or go there yourself, you can read more about it and it’s history at it’s website here or at the Arizona State Park’s website here.
