Throwback Thursday ~ Rural Arizona

Here is the site's posting from 5 years ago..... 5 May 2011.
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.

  1. I love that place. In April we took my grandson over there and we met Joe Begay. He sells minerals and silver jewelry). He regaled us with stories of his life for hours! Made our day.
