AridZona

Aridzona

Interior of the back wall at my aunt and uncle's place in Surprise, AZ (just outside Phoenix).  It's dry here.  85 in the day and 50 at night.

The back yards in this neighborhood have solid walls around 7 feet high.  When I amble the sidewalks behind, I get barked at by invisible dogs, every tenth house or so.  I hope they are not in the yards of houses that have been foreclosed upon.

It's the same way in Las Vegas, although I've only been there once, so maybe I didn't look enough.

The things sticking on the wall look like decorations, but they remind me of the colorful "rocks" on the climbing wall at NCMLS. That's what I'd put on my stone wall.

That is an intriguing photo, Phil. The multicolored tchotchkes on the wall... maybe the Arizonian equivalent of pink flamingos in Florida? Lawn gnomes? :-)

I like your blog. You're welcome to visit mine anytime.

Nice photo, Phil. Sounds kind of claustrophobic, all those walls.
