We would like to introduce you to a new feature of "How Sam Sees It" called "Pet Friendly Arizona!". As you know, Aaron and I are always looking for places to go with Sam and thought we would share our successes (and maybe our failures - we have been kicked out of a place or two!) with you. That way, if you are ever visiting Arizona, you will know where you can go and what to do with your fur-pal!
Our first stop on our tour is at Boyce Thompson Arboretum. The Arboretum is located 3 miles south of the town of Superior on U.S. 60. This is one of our favorite places to go, as well as one of the prettiest. While Boyce Thompson has always been dog friendly, we noticed they have stepped up the welcome even more! As you reach the main intersection of trails, there are dog bags (all they ask is that you clean up after your dogs!) as well as water dishes next to every fountain!
Sam has always enjoyed his visits to the Arboretum!
After all the rains we've gotten this year in Arizona, the flowers here were putting on quite a show!
There are also lots of world exhibits to look at. Here is Sam sitting outside the station in the Australian exhibit.
Here he is in the Herb Garden.

There are also many trails to wander through.
