Arizona Center, part 2

This is one of the many fountains located on the grounds of the Arizona Center. There are a series of three fountains like this with sculptures of frogs in various poses. These fountains face a well-landscaped garden that is shaded by large trees. If you dine at one of the two main restaurants, you can sit on the patio and face the garden.

Wow. That is an impressive fountain.

When the Arizona Center originally opened, this fountain -- along with a couple of others -- were definitely some of the jewels in its crown. This particular fountain originally had a fog effect, which sent billowing fog onto the sidewalk, cooling the air immediately surrounding the fountain during warm weather. I don't know if it's still fully functional, but it was mesmerizing to watch.

I bet this area is jam=packed with tourists during the winter months. It looks very a spot most tourists would gravitate to.
