The moon is waxxxxxing!!!
We ended our stay in Paradise Valley (near Phoenix) with a "Letterpress Express" party at Karla and Jim's. 30 artists and poets sat around a huge long table for dinner, then were entertained by Peter's "book arts folksongs". Since Peter was singing to people who know about books, they understood all the silly puns and jokes, and their mirth was enhanced by beer, wine and excellent food so all were laughing!
Catalina State Park, just outside of Tucson, was our destination the next day. Peter set up the solar panels keep the battery charged, and we walked at dusk among the blooming ocotillos and cactus. I can see how people fall in love with the desert, especially after a wet winter and the blooms are vivid against the muted colored desert.
One more photo shows the "first visitor to our caravan while dumping at a toilet dumping station." He didn't even notice me doing the job while Peter showed him around Paloma. He is planning on making one to live and travel in.
