Response to DemoTex (Original post)

28. Wonderful pictures. Thank you for sharing. Glad you had a great visit!

We love the Tucson area. It is so beautiful, and the flora and fauna are incredible. The native plant and animal adaptations for desert life is so fascinating. The Saguaro NP is one of our favorite places. As many times as we have been there, we have missed going to Mt. Lemon, though.

Do you ever get a chance to get to an area where the desert has not been overgrazed? Would really love you to post pictures of a protected area, so people could understand how severely overgrazed and abused the desert lands are. We were in the Phoenix Mountain Park one year and got to see an area that had been protected from grazing for 40 years or more. The vegetation cover was incredible and it finally made sense to me why the pioneers thought the area was great to run cattle.

Thank you, again, for your beautiful pictures. Keep them coming, please.
