Rural Arizona ~

On my way home from a conference in Nogales I stopped for a tranquil moment at Mission San Xavier ("White Dove of the Desert"). The large plaza in front of the church is filled with vendors who sell Indian fry bread. As relief from the intense sun they use ocotillo cacti branches to create a bit of shade. In the background is the grotto hill.
