desert plants, forced marches







Not so long ago...
The Yavapai-Apache tribe were forcefully removed from the Verde Valley in 1876, to the San Carlos Indian Reservation, 180 miles southeast. 1500 people were marched, in midwinter, to San Carlos. Several hundred lost their lives. The survivors were interned for 25 years. About 200 Yavapai-Apache people returned to the Verde Valley in 1900. (Wikipedia)

Beautiful!
Arizona photos and the cactus photos. I think your photos are gorgeous. The turtledove in our garden dose not flock.

Thanks, Makiko! I'd love to see the turtle dove, they have such beautiful wings.
