A mountain view in the park. :)

Today is the first day working on the AZ site, and everything has been going great so far other than I still need to make some changes to the release tasks that I have completed before I come to the state. Anyway just finish dinner and would like to do some blog post regarding some of the outing that I have done on day 2. For day 2 in AZ, I has been pretty lucky that my peer in the state is willing to spend his (and his wife time) bringing me around for some site seeing. our destination during my 2nd day in AZ is the Old Dutchman State Park. (Thanks Herb) :)

The park do has a lot of animal like rattles snake, jack rabbits, lizard and even road runner. But, too bad it is currently winter right now and most of the animals are in their hibernating state. (And based on the info, they will only come out at night).

Watch out for the torn - it bites!

On top of that, there is a lot of different cactus (yes, different species) available in the park as well. Darn, I totally forget about what is their name, but what I could say that the highest cactus that I saw here is like 10 feet+. :O

One last shoot before we left - There is a small tiny moon on the left (white dot) :"P

Anyway, a short post and here are some of the photos taken in the park. I hope that all of you will enjoy it. Night... :)

* And yes, manage to see a road runner on our way back. It is not as big as it is in the cartoon. (Which is the same size as the wolf) It is actually some pretty small bird. (Don't be deceived by the cartoon ya). :"D
