    The fence is running right through Naco, just West of town a bit, looking West.

      to destroy that beautiful desert with a wall like that.  The Huachucas used to be a migration route not just for immigrants, but for jaguars and ocelots too.  At least the birds can fly over it.

      How lucky for you to live where you do.  There's a whole lot of wonderful nature in that part of AZ.

        Huachucas any more.  Ocelots, maybe...there are stream crossings they could get through.

        The fence is ugly as sin.  We'll have to get together a diary on it one day.  I even have some video.

      That photo makes me want to jump on a dirt bike, like a Honda XR500, and just ride as many trails as possible as the sun sets and EVERYTHING cools.  I grew up in the northern part of Tucson before it became what it is today.  When I was a kid, my neighborhood had:  1) Only dirt roads; and 2) No public garbage collection.  It was county living before the massive Californization of southern AZ.  When Canyon Ranch was still a "secret" for rich addicts from Hollywood, and we could dirt bike around around 'em.  Some of the happiest moments of my childhood involve coming home from elementary school, walking up the hill from the bus stop, and kick-starting my little Honda 50 cc to life.  SO MUCH INDEPENDENCE AT 10!
