You have brush in Arizona? I thought all you had was cactus and scorpions that glow in the dark. Then again it's been decades since my parents got their kicks on Route 66 in a 1957 Mercury Monterey. The Merc didn't have air conditioning but at least it had quadrobeam headlights.

Dave who still can't picture brush in Arizona.

Well, I won't claim there is brush everywhere, but it definitely exists. Especially at higher altitudes, but that's not a guarantee.

There's plenty of brush in Arizona, they were looking at bringing in a slurry bomber a couple of months ago to deal with fire here in Mesa, which is hardly high elevation. Now, with these 110+ temps the desert can be an even bigger tinderbox.

Damn! That means California doesn't have an exclusive on brush fires.

When I was seven the family came west to California on Route 66. The highway was in the process of being modernized a project started by president Eisenhower. There were strips of highway in construction so we went from finished highway to graded gravel every few minutes. I don't know what states that was in. That was the summer of 1958.

My father took the family to as many national parks as possible. The last cross country trip by car was probably 1967. The last time I was my grandmother in Massachusetts she was in an oxygen tent. My father took Route 66 east and a deep southern route back to take us kids to as many states and parks as possible.

Most of the parts of Arizona I've been to seem to be desert. I've been to the Colorado, "The River" many times. I've been on The River in small boats with 7 to 10 hp outboards from Davis to Hover Dam. 

Memories of my Childhood and youth.

I was right about the scorpions that glow in the dark wasn't I?

Under a black light (i.e., UV light), yes!

Proof: (Sorry, this is not from this month...hopefully no one minds too much)

P.S. I will start an Arizona-with-plants thread for you, too. Maybe tomorrow.

Used to watch John Acorn (his real name) "The Nature Nut" and in one episode they used portable black lights to find scorpions at night.
