St Phillip’s Plaza

Ah! . . . bummer . . . I like St Phillip’s Plaza farmer’s market, but, again, some store owners complained and I was asked to leave. Isn’t that selfish? I guess they consider me (or my book) a threat.

The Gorge

The bridge to the caves

A two-story building, about six families used to live in these cliffs, a window to the world of our ancestors.

The way out

With a good-looking ranger

Trees growing on sheer cliff

A beautiful hiker on her way out

My camp by the Gila River, a javelina just went by. I thought they always moved in packs.
