Poki …

… the desert tortoise.

I don’t think that it’s any secret that Bullhead City is in the middle of the desert.

Apparently there are real, live, desert tortoises somewhere in the general area.  Bullhead City residents can even adopt a desert tortoise from the fish and game department to actually care for one.

The above (2 ton) desert tortoise was given to Bullhead City by the artist in early 2014 and is a huge (pun intended) tourist attraction, often with people lining up to get their pictures with the tortoise.  I guess we’re just lucky … the day we were there, we were the only ones!

    I think you should definitely adopt one of those big boys, strap him on between the truck and the RV since you don’t have a car filling that space lol you can bring him for walks when you take Brice out

    Bryce is slow enough. I don’t want to spend all day going for 2 walks! 🙂
