    The Painted Desert photo really looks like a painting. Amazing. Great photos.

    Thanks, Rusty!

    It does, indeed. The Blue Mesa is also part of that, and there are other parts that have other colours, too; plus there’s a whole bunch of petrified wood. It’s a really neat place…

    SE AZ! I have got to get back home to SE Arizona. But, the monsoons are starting and that means dust storms, water crashing from the sky, and soaring heat (120 is natural, but they’re having a ‘cool’ summer 🙂 Most definitely good pictures, thank you.

        They’re trying bring back the thick bill parrot (he’s not too bright, ya see 🙂 in SE AZ for years. The parrot is small and eats ponderosa pine nuts. They went extinct in AZ about a century ago, but there are plenty in the Sierras, in Mexico. Jaguars, as well, but only males have come back so far. If you’re there and see one, do not, ever tell Forestry or the rancher will beat you up. Jaguars aren’t known to take livestock, but keep the deer herd healthy. they do a number on mountain lions and coyotes, as well (fuzzy chew toys), which will kill livestock and people. A friend saw one one her place when a newlywed (they had just bought the place) and 50 years later swears it was a blessing from God, telling them they would have a good marriage. BTW, Forestry tried to livetrap two males about 10 years ago and killed one and mutilated the other. (Shh! do not ever, never tell Forestry is ya see one! 🙂
