    Riot, eh?

    Hey Eric, the world wild life zoo moved to Camp Verde, and I don't think they're open yet, but there are a ga-zillion places to shoot around here. If you're into bugs, my back yard is good, there's ducks at all the subdivisions with ponds and wild animals in the desert. One of my favorite afternoon trips is to Superstition Park about 40 miles east of Phoenix, another is Seven Springs about the same distance north.

    The Desert Museum in Tucson is probably the best run zoo in America, and I'll usually dditch work (especially during the holidays) to go there. And I've had some especially good luck with birds of prey (vultures) in the newly restored Salt River bottom near Central Avenue.

    Oh, and I saw your post about Cibola too. I drive right by there a few times a year. It might be a blast to stop there one of these times.

    PM me and let me know your schedule. Another member here, Yokimbo, is setting up an Arizona get-together. Perhaps we could time it to coincide with your visit!
