Desert Animals at Hacienda Animal Pond

Bobcat at Hacienda pond

A large window in the Galleria Suite looks out to a wild animal pond which attracts birds, rabbits, javelina, and bobcats.  Last week our assistant innkeeper was servicing a room when a mother bobcat with her two young ones appeared at the pond for a drink.  Her little ones are hiding behind her.

Outside the same room appeared a Gila Monster, a bright orange and black desert lizard near the foot of the pool climbing over the rocks to get a drink.
