With events such as David Rogers’ Big Bugs and glass by Dale Chihuly, the Desert Botanical Garden is the Southwest destination attraction. Sculptor David Rogers has created 11 enormous, whimsical bugs on display in the garden during the Winter of 2011 -2012. The sculptures weigh from 300 to 1,200 pounds and range from seven feet to 25 feet long. This panorama is taken outside the main entrance to the Garden and shows the Desert Towers glass creations by Dale Chihuly. Five hundred and twenty-five Garden members, visitors and friends, contributed over $774,000 to the Desert Towers Invitational to make these sculptures a permanent part of the Garden experience. The Garden has 145 acres with 65 acres under cultivation. There are over 50,000 plants on display maintained by 104 staff members. Over 600,000 people visit the Garden every year. The Garden is located just east of Phoenix, Arizona in Papago Park.

Описание для места - USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
