Crazy Armed Saguaros

June 21, 2019
   Had a wonderful Tucson morning, starting with breakfast at Prep and Pastry on north Campbell with John Langallier and Stuart Rosebrook. John bought. 

   From there I did a podcast with Mark Sublette at 9:30 this morning at his gallery, Medicine Man Gallery in Tucson. Took off from there at 11 and drove out to White Stallion Guest Ranch and met Russell True and Stan Hustad. On the way into the ranch I spied a couple gnarly saguaros and made a mental note to capture them on the way out.

  Then I did something I haven't done in 30 years: North of Picacho I actually turned off of the I-10 and drove through Coolidge! It's not looking particularly good, but then, what small, farming community does these days?

Coolidge Thru The Dust

  I had forgotten that the actual Casa Grande (the ruins) is on the outskirts of Coolidge and not in the town of Casa Grande, which is named, I assume, for the ancient ruins.

  I know, strange, but not this strange:

  1. Hey Bob, Greetings across space and time. Tucson is edging across my traveling vista. I may spend some writing time there with a pal. Drop me a line at and let's renew contact.
    cheers, Daniel
