Another amazing evening hike yesterday! We saw tons of different wildlife and experienced a pristine sunset followed by our clear night skies. The stars were out and so were we. Thanks JW Marriott staff, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!!! #eveninghike #visittucson #hiking #sunset #sonorandesert  

Desert Tortoise

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

 The desert tortoise is a rare find because they spend up to 98% of their time underground. The population has decreased dramatically for this unique Mojave and Sonoran desert survivor. Feeding on desert shrubs, flowers and cacti allows it to utilize moisture from the plants. A powerful digger, the tortoise can dig itself a burrow a few feet below ground to escape extreme heat and cold desert nights! #sonorandesert #wildlife #deserttotoise #tucson
