Phoenix – day 5 of our Southwest Road Trip

It was suppose to be over 100 in Phoenix today so we got an early start. We were at the Desert Botanical Garden at 7:30. 

About half way through our explorations we ate a great brunch at Gertrude’s the Botanical Garden restaurant.

Next we went to the Arizona State Capital. Duke and I are working on visiting all fifty state capitals. A lot of them look very similar. I liked the Arizona capital. It is pretty and different. 


We also wandered around the grounds and looked at many of the monuments in the park in front of the capital. This one is two guns. One gun is from the USS Arizona that was sunk at Pearl Harbor at the beginning of World Ear II. The other gun is from the USS Missouri the ship on which the Japanese surrender was signed. 


And this memorial is dedicated to police dogs.
