Interesting how we have a perception that Arizona is all desert, but many of your photos show another side to it.

Oh, that's true!!

You bet that's what I think of. Don't your state's license plates have a representation of saguaro on them?

The other image that comes to me is from a children's book my kids liked when they were little. It was about a brother and sister whose family was moving from Boston to Phoenix and they were afraid of what they would find when they arrived. It was called Gila Monsters Meet You at the Airport.

They are so beautiful...kind of nature's own architecture.

I would love to have one of those. They are different and neat looking.
