At that this time of the month for the last few years I have always travelled to the state of Arizona. This year will be an exception as the current situation with the pandemic has literally ended all my travel intention. I thought therefore I will reflect via some photos on the areas I have visited in the last few years.
Sierra Ancha is a mountain range in Gila county in central Arizona. It now has improved roads which makes it easier to penetrate, and visit the many archaeological remains which exist.
Arizona for me is still the land of Agaves with many other succulents thrown in to the characteristic xeric landscape.
I love the succulents and I love them when the flowers are in bloom.
And it is important to remember this is the state of wonderful saguaros.
Plant Nurseries are numerous which means that if you are looking for seedlings and young specimens, you will find lots of them in Tucson and in Phoenix.
And there are the cities with active people.
