    Oh, I forgot! While you're in Tucson you need to go to San Xavier Del Bac Mission on the Tohono O'odham rez. It is beautiful.

    Well I'll watch out for the nixie. I think I walk around the lake. It is flat and not so long forest path and Mom should get along. At lest that is one of the things she wants to do.

    Watch out for the nixie.

    You'd find the mountains around Show Low and Snowflake familiar. A nice Alpine climate.

    They only grow below 4000ft elevation in that part of the Sonora desert. Southern AZ -- Phoenix and south, at lower elevations. And a little strip into northern Mexico.

    They should resort to delivery by drone. But be aware that you are not bombed with grocery deliveries.

    Some of the Movies have been exported to Germany. :) 3:10 Yuma, Bonnaza, El Dorado, Gunfight at the OK Corral, High Chaparral.

    Saguaro, I like them. They look great but question is, if they will grow anywhere else.

    There beads to have which ARE hard to get at home if at all. The buckskin cleaner is sold out.

    Now BA, after you poke around Tucson, I'd send you east on I-10 to Benson, where you turn off on AZ 80 to Tombstone. Here you can almost choke to death on the thick "Old West" ambiance. It is a total tourist trap. In my opinion, it's every bit as bad as Deadwood, SD. But, I don't have much romance for that era of history. But my Dad grew up on 1940's Saturday matinees and loved all those 1950's and 1960's westerns. He had a ball pretending he was John Wayne.

    Then head down the Tombstone Canyon into Bisbee. Bisbee is a copper mining town, which sounds completely unappealing. But it has rebranded itself as a day trip destination. The architecture is pretty and the canyon is lovely. The downtown has galleries, craft breweries, eateries and antique stores. Hit the Bisbee Mining Museum. Walk around and window shop.

    The Phelps Dodge mining company used to take the turquoise that the got while mining copper and dumped it in the tailings piles. This turquoise was often smuggled out of the dumps by employees and made its way on to the market. In the early 1970's, Phelps Dodge granted mining rights and a couple thousand pounds of Bisbee Blue went on into jewelry and the stashes of various lapidaries. Some decades ago, Phelps Dodge declared the turquoise played out and covered the tailings piles with many feet of dirt and rock, in part to discourage casual prospecting.

    After a nice day in Bisbee, head out early in the morning back up to I-10 and east into Las Cruces.

    Well, since nothing else is going on, I'll keep torturing people with the places I'd send BA if he had a year in the US. (I've already emailed him northern NM and AZ, and SD, NE, WY, and MT.)

    Once you'r out of the Salt River Canyon on US 60 you'll end up in Globe. Stop at the Besh-Ba-Gowah Archeological Park and Museum.

    https://www.globeaz.gov/besh-ba-gowa...ark-and-museum

    You can eat at my cousin's favorite restaurant, Irene's. The chicken and green chili chimichanga is good. After lunch, head toward Tucson on US 70/AZ7. Before taking AZ 77 into Tucson, keep on US 70 and head into the San Carlos rez. Just over the border is bead shop -- Beaded Edge Supply -- that I stopped at on my trip out there in Oct 2019. (A lady at Irene's told me about when she heard my cousin and I talking about beads. )

    https://www.coppercountrynews.com/article/beaded-edge-supply-celebrates-expansion-with-grand-re-opening
    Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/beadededgesupply/

    After you've stocked up on beads, hides and all, head down AZ 77 into Tucson. Once you get south of Oracle Junction you'll start to see those icons of the "Wild West" of the wild west of the imagination, the saguaro cactus (Carnegiea gigantea). To really them you need to go to Safuaro National Park

    https://www.nps.gov/sagu/index.htm

    These cacti are amazing. They grow only in parts of the Sonora desert in AZ and Mexico. They sink a large deep tap root into the earth and draw up water to saturate a spongy interior. At the height of the monsoon season, they can weight up to 90lb a foot. They flower in late spring and are pollinated by bees and bats. The Native peoples of the area harvested the red fruits using long hooked poles. The Tohono O'odham make syrup, jam and a wine used in ceremony from the fruits, and the seeds are processed into meal and oil. The woody ribs of dead cacti were used for construction in the wood poor area.

    https://www.nps.gov/sagu/learn/histo...vest-Brief.pdf

    After that head over to the Sonora Desert Museum. Just don't take me with you. I've been there twice and both times I've driven up the mountain in blinding rain storms. (I'm the desert rain magnet. When I went to Idyllwild in 2015, they were having a drought. It starting sprinkling when we hit Desert Center on I-10. A day later, the bridge on I-10 over Tex Wash was washed out by flood waters.)

    https://www.desertmuseum.org

    Then stop at Old Tucson. Old Tucson is a film studio and theme park. If you grew up watching exported American movie and TV westerns, you've seen Old Tucson (Movies and TV filmed at Old Tucson). Although what you see today will bear no resemblance to the movies and TV of old. In 1995, Old Tucson was heavily damaged by a fire started by a serial arsonist.

    I think I have to employ a real Chuy for Rose and her Food wishes.
    We do what we can.

    Birds watching, that is good. Yesterday we had half a dozen tits swirling among the brushes in the front yard. And of course the always present crows and ravens though they are more on the fields now.

    I went to bed early and I am still sleepy in the morning. It is dark when your rise and it is dark when you go to bed.
    And we are closing on the 0°C temperature.

    Coffee was hot and the Sunday egg just right.

    Another great book would be Radiation and Scattering of Waves by Leopold Belmond Felson and Nathan Marcuwitz. No book for non math nerds.

    *Rose hauls the portable evaporative on to the trailer and unloads the propane patio heaters. She looks around. Her travel log seems to have run everyone off. She pounds on the side to the food truck to wake up Chuy.*

    Stacked cheese and blue corn enchiladas with green chili sauce and a fried egg, and cup of hot chocolate, please.

    Looks like they're getting frost up in northern NM. The pinion harvest should be going full swing. Because of the drought it's not going to be a good year :(

    After passing through McNary, get on the AZ 73 and head to Fort Apache. Visit the museum and the old fort.

    When you get back on US 60, heading toward Globe, you'll be beginning your trip into the Salt River Canyon. But you've heard me wax poetic over that drive before, LOL.

    A minor correction of the title. An article seems to have gone missing the in the translation of a Spanish place name to German and back to English -- It is The Los Alamos Primer. The text is from Edward Condon's (of Franck-Condon Principle fame) notes of Robert Serber's series of technical orientation lectures given to arriving Manhatten Project scientists. If you don't eat modern physics for breakfast, it's not light bedtime reading.

    Speaking of breakfast... Chuy, could I please have some grapes, a cup of blue cornmeal mush and some iced tea.


    BA, once we get you to San Antonio, NM you need to hang a left and stop at the Bosque Del Apache Wildlife preserve. The bird watching is fantastic. If you're were there right now you could see the Sand Hill cranes.

    When you're tired of the birds, head back up I-25 and get on to US 60 in Socorro. Stop at the Buckhorn Cafe and sample the green chili cheese burger. Stroll around the historic town square and San Miguel Mission. It isn't Old Town Albq or Santa Fe, but it's pretty. Hit the Mineral Museum at the NM Bureau of Geology near the NM Institute of Mining and Technology. (Buy bottled water before leaving town because I'm going to send you walking in the desert.)

    Then head west on US 60 through Magdelena. Once you pass Mt Withington start watching for NM 52. Your next stop is the Very Large Array Radio Telescope.

    https://public.nrao.edu/visit/very-large-array/

    Since you'll be feeling peckish after hiking around the self-guided tour of the VLA, stop at Pie-o-neer Pies, in Pie Town. My favorite is the cranberry apple crumb. Keep heading west into Arizona. In Springerville, get on AZ 260.

    Near Sunrise lake you'll cross into the Fort Apache rez. If you stop at Sunrise Park you can look south and see Mt Baldy or to the White Mtn Apache Dził Łigai Sí'án. This is one of four sacred mountain ranges in the Apache homeland. People still make pilgrimages for prayer and ceremony. Although there are trails and the north eastern slope is off the reservation and on national forest land, show your respect by admiring the mountain from a distance.

    A well radiating historic landmark among more unkown ones.

    May I recommend the book "The Alamos Primer"?
    Nothing for WD I fear though it isn't as scientific technical as it could be.
    There the dragon was unleashed man made for the first time in full.
    Natural it happened long ago.

    What did you do today to be healthy?
    by ndnMSW
    I'm interested in hearing what people do each day for their own health, or for their families' health.

    Denver March and The Gathering

    I see that the first 2 major powwows have been postponed/cancelled because of the fear of spreading Covid 19 / Corona virus.
    Do you think this was wise or is everyone in a panic ?
