Snow In Tucson Panoramas   2 comments

Last week we had two inches of snow in Tucson and 2.5 feet on Mt. Lemmon and by the time these images were taken most of the snow in the basin had melted. It was beautiful while it lasted.

Sticks and Stones Art — Photo-Essay   1 comment

Tanuri Ridge includes about 40 acres along the Tanque Verde wash,
which runs into the Rillito River.
Thirty-six years ago there were concrete picnic tables
under several big cottonwood trees.
Since that time there has been a flood washing away the tables
and a fire that destroyed many of the trees.
Now it is frequented by people walking their dogs and horseback riders,
and yes, photographers like myself.

When we moved to Tanuri Ridge in 2010,
I went for a walk down by the wash 
and discovered
different forms of nature sculpture alone the trails.

Someone was taking sticks and stones to create art.

Over the years, some of the art would be removed while new appeared.

I began to ask around and learned the art was probably the work of
David and Margarita Berg.

David was a resident of Tanuri Ridge when we move here.
During my first walk down by the wash,
I discovered a memorial to Margarita Berg.
Previously, I had met David in the community,
so I called him and asked if I might interview him
for a newsletter I was preparing for Tanuri Ridge — he agreed.
Click here for a link to that posting I wrote on David and Margarita, June 8, 2011.

David no longer lives in Tanuri Ridge,
but it is evident that he returns to maintain Margarita’s memorial,
which has the same signature as the Tanque Verde wash art —
sticks and stones.
