Vapor Visuals: Boyce Thompson Arboretum

Hey there vape fans! We’re back this week with another installment of Vapor Visuals! This week we took a trip to the Boyce Thompson Arboretum located south of Superior, Arizona. This happens to be the largest and oldest botanical garden in the state, and was quite a delight to explore. With so many great floral smell and verity of plant life, there were times when I wasn’t sure I was still in Arizona! So here’s your map to the arboretum, and now just site back relax, and enjoy our visual tour of the Boyce Thompson Arboretum. 

Yellow Barrel Cactus

The Arboretum has a large variety of Cactus. Like these Yellow Barrel Cactus

Endura T22 Cactus

One great thing about this visit, was that vaping was allowed. So I pulled out my Endura T22 that I brought with me and enjoyed walking around vaping.

Weird cactus

Speaking of vaping, we actually have five new flavors coming out today, Monday March 28th. So we’ll take a look at there flavor profiles as we tour this garden.

Red Barrel Cactus

What better picture to start with than this blooming barrel cactus? The reason I say this is that one of our flavors is called Desert Rain. Desert Rain is an oasis of prickly pear and tropical fruit flavors. Bathe yourself in the rejuvenating elixir of Desert Rain.

Devil Plant

There were so many bizarre and amazing varieties of plants, like this demonic looking Aloe. But you know what else is slightly demonic? Our new Devil’s Food Cake! Give into temptation with this decadent classic. Bringing chocolate cake to a sinful new level.


As I traveled through the garden, there were a lot of places for observers to take breaks, escape the sun, and still enjoy the surrounding garden. Like this covered outdoor space.

Prickly Pear

As my journey continued through the Arboretum I could tell that this was not going to be a one time visit. One reason was that the cacti looked to be only a couple weeks away from starting to bloom in full and I definitely want to be there for that!

Kbox Garden

Apart from the T22 I also brought with me the Kanger KBOX 70W Box Mod. My main reason for this was so I could have two different flavors ready go and didn’t need to worry about refilling or dripping wail hiking.

Garden Path

The flavor I had in my KBOX however, just so happened to be one of our new flavors, Gimmix. Gimmix is a nostalgic e-juice that blasts your favorite fruity cereal straight into your lungs. One of the best cereal flavors I’ve tasted! Silly critics, vaping is for adults!

Giant Aloe

Okay, this Aloe plant was crazy! I felt like I had gone back in time to the era of the dinosaurs. I know it’s hard to tell in this photo, but this plant was well over 6’2″ tall. The only reason I know this is because I felt small standing next to it and I’m 6’2″!

Garden Walkway

Continuing on we pass through this lovely covered walkway and into the demonstration garden.

Humming Bird 2

It was in this part of the Arboretum that I came across this humming bird enjoying some nectar from the flowers and I thought to myself, “I bet this little guy would enjoy our new Lemon Meringue Pie e-juice smell.” That’s right, Lemon Meringue Pie flavored e-juice. An old-fashioned treat with flaky crust, tart lemon filling, and heavenly meringue all bottled up into one delicious and refreshing vape we know you’ll love.


As my day started to come to an end, I wanted to go checkout some more of the cactus gardens before I had to leave, and that’s when I found one of the strangest cactus’s I’ve come by yet, the Totem Pole cactus. Instead of thorns and spikes, it was waxy, bumpy, and grew into some really unique and interesting shapes.

Desert Garden

Our last, but not least, flavor we have coming to you is a new tobacco flavor developed in the heart of the South West. Tobacc O Yeah is a smooth, robust taste of tobacco that has been imbued with the sweetness of caramel. Oh yeah!


That ends our adventures at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum, for this week. But I will definitely be back soon to catch the true bloom of the desert plant life.

    I love these photos! There are so many different succulents that grow in the Arizona desert, it’s mind blowing. I was amazed to see orange trees everywhere when I last visited, and the aloe varieties grow to massive sizes! Does the heat kill you when you go out or have you adjusted to it?
    I have been eyeing the Endura T22. Is it wonderful? I’m looking for that quality, yet semi-basic mod that utilizes a reliable tank. I’m leaning toward the Endura as I haven’t read anything bad about it.
    Thanks for sharing the pictures!

      @Elisabeth – Thanks for checking out the blog! When I go out on adventures I try to start early to beat the heat. However, I have noticed that I am starting to adapt to the heat though, but I still try to avoid the hottest parts of the day. I like the Endura T22 mostly because I am a mouth to lung kind of vaper. It has a really tight draw that, for me, makes my vaping experience more pleasant. Another good choice for you could be the eGo One from Joyetech if you like the pen style mods. It is simple to use, and I haven’t had any problem with the tank yet. Hope this helps and again thanks for checking out my blog!
