These javelinas don't mind our recent snow at all! A permanent fixture to greet visitors at the Desert Museum, they are bronze sculptures by artist Mark Rossi. Isn't the color combination here beautiful - the red patio and the white snow provide a remarkable contrast to the artwork. Photo courtesy Camille Pons.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
