The grassy pastures, mountain vistas and low population density make this one of the most scenic drives in all of southern Arizona. Today's scenery included a few Brahman cattle which we hadn't seen on previous trips. A lot of times I hop out of the car to photograph cattle, horses or whatever and they run the other way. These Brahmans just kept doing what they were doing or meandered closer to me.
It looks like I was lucky and caught a photo of a western round-up. These are actually life size steel silhouettes like the top photo.
We've also been checking out some of the real estate in the area. This REO, architect designed home was nothing short of magnificent, but at 2200 sq. ft we would get lost in it.
If the house above was too big, this was too small at 700 sq. ft. This was one of two similar houses on the same 5 acre parcel. The funky sun shades on the porches were pretty creative. Houses in Arizona can be conventional stud construction, adobe, slump block, hay bale, rammed earth or concrete block to name a few construction methods; the more we look the more we learn.
