Native American Artisit

Thus far my photo blog has featured photos of inanimate objects and animals. On Easter Sunday I had the opportunity to take photos of a Native American artist who had a both at the Mission San Xavier del Bac in Tucson. I asked if I could take his photo while he worked, and then he took the time to explain what he was designing.

Get my deserts straight!

In my last post I mistakenly wrote that Tucson is in the Sonora Desert, when in fact it is the Sonoran Desert.

The Sonora Desert

We are in Tucson (see my travel blog at and it is a very senic area. The city is surrounded by mountains, and is situated in the Sonora Desert, native habitat for the Saguaro Cactus. I been having a ball photographing cacti. These three photos are only the beginning — more to come!

Junction, Texas ducklings…

It is unusual to see so many ducks sticking so close together. The duck were the Long Island type, not wild ducks. We were told that the KOA owners raised the ducks in a pen, and just the day before they had taken them to the river, and they couldn't get them to come out. Later that evening we saw the ducks waddling through the campground, finally on their way back "home."
