Gila Greetings ~
Welcoming visitors to Tucson is this great metal sign that features a gila monster (pronounced "heel-a" or "hee-la"). Since it is a venomous lizard, I find this a curious choice as welcoming ambassador but these lizards are definitely beautiful and unusual. At night the lizard lights up - fun!
