I am sick at heart over hearing that one of my favorite areas to explore in the Sonoran Desert is now threatened by a lightning caused Wildfire! The biodiversity of the area around Globe Arizona is unparalleled as it is one of those rare places where the Desert sits at the base of beautiful Evergreen forests. Don and I have extensively explored the territory and have never ceased to be amazed by the rugged beauty of the area. In the near future I will be posting pictures of the Cactus Garden where we camped just off a 4X4 trail near the base of Signal Peak.
The following is an excellent video by Paul Garvey of the brave Firefighters fighting the fire from the air, and Ground Crews clearing area of potential fuel. We owe them so much for putting their lives on the line to keep our communities safe!
