Never the same river
Me again, posting about the San Pedro River and the horrors wrought by Homeland Security on this huge patch of heaven...
Here is the view from the banks of the mighty San Pedro as on November 14th. The wall is within a 1/4 mile of the water now, and the scraping, gaping maw of the construction equipment drowns out the sound of the hawks circling above the sacaton grasslands.
It didn't, however, silence the silence of an owl swooping along the river between the cottonwood trees. She watched us with the eyes of a very wise being. Wiser than the fools who think this wall will work.
