Here's what we've been doing lately ...
|You see the strangest things sometimes ... We never figured out what this guy was supposed to be but he did have a hat out for change ... He didn't play or sing but he was a pretty frenetic dancer!|
|Well, this is just one of the 90+ quilts that were on display at the Tombstone Art Gallery. I spent about 45 minutes in there; Wendell even looked around for a while.|
|We did go through Sonoita again recently; this is one of their "welcome" signs ...|
|... and here's the real thing; saw this longhorn just east of Sonoita on the Lower Elgin Road. There was a big herd -- more longhorns together in one place than we ever saw in TX!|
I think I mentioned before that this is a fairly new city; established in the late 1950's. They're pretty good at controlling the esthetics of urban growth. For instance, the two pictures above are how they camouflage cell towers. Also, signage regulations are pretty restrictive; most signs are very low. You won't see the big golden arches in SV. (Sometimes that makes it hard for us to find things and we do a lot of missing a place and having to turn around to go back! lol!) And most of the power lines are buried.
This is just a few of the glyphs we saw in Garden Canyon ... they say there are over 70 different figures in all. You could figure out what most of them were, but the one that looks like a comb? Any ideas people? I think during that entire drive we only encountered two other vehicles. And the weather was great, sunny and cool.
Well, I see in my photo file I have lots more to share, so I'll write again later this week . I hope you're enjoying a good Monday -- I am. God bless you, and take care of yourself and those you love. Here's what we saw yesterday when we were out in the dessert ..... awesome! All these clouds but no rain!
