SCVN members and guests hiked the Sweetwater Trail
Friday, March 15, 2019, on a beautiful spring day.

Cattle Watering Hole In Southern Arizona — Pay Me Now, Or Pay Me Later   Leave a comment

Cattle at Watering Hole-Edit-1-painting-blogCattle Watering Hole In Southern Arizona — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Once beautiful desert grassland,
Now destroyed by cattle raising 

On land unable to sustain 
The native desert environment

Draining the groundwater levels in a
World of “pay me now, or pay me later.”
