IT'S THE DESERT Y'ALL





Outside of Tucson is Mt. Lemmon. It's got lots of saguaros, perfectly eroded rocks, and, at the top, a teeny ski village.





























Most of my photos were taken at Windy Point, a rest stop along the highway built by Federal prisoners over a period of 18 years. This got me thinking that our National and State parks could sure use the care and attention of all the unemployed young folks out there. It's time to bring back the WPA.

FOR REALZ


Also, a little science joke my Marine Biology prof. told me: "Freddy FUNGUS and Alice ALGAE took a LICHEN to each other and now their marriage is on the ROCKS because she is driving him up a TREE!"  MDR (french slang for y'all)

HALLOW'D DECAY










My sweet Jack O' Latern carved on Wednesday on the compost pile by Saturday. In total decay by Halloween. Now I just watch it everyday from my window as the flies and bacteria swallow it up.
