Huntington Library , Pasadena - jungle garden

Since we knew there’d be way more to see at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens than we’d have time to explore while we were in the Pasadena area, we skipped the desert and cactus gardens (they’re supposed to be very good – we just have lots of desert gardens here in Arizona) and headed straight for something different: the jungle garden.

I really being enveloped in lush the rainforest-like landscape.

Thick trees were like an entire ecosystem of their own with vines climbing their trunks and air plants nestled in their branches.

We spotted ferns and flowers and plants with leaves the size of umbrellas.

My favorite spot was right next to the waterfall.

We received complimentary press passes to Huntington Library via Pasadena Convention & Visitors Bureau.
