The photo at the top of the blog is the actual cover of a book I had when I was a small boy growing up back in the early 50's. The rest of the book is gone but I found the cover while cleaning out my Mother's house years ago. It was this book that I would look through over & over marveling at all the wild west cowboy pictures. My imagination was in overdrive as I turned the pages looking at desert scenes, mountains, stagecoaches, cowboys, sagebrush, & towering cactus. The drawings came alive for me & it was in these colorful pages that my love for the American southwest took hold. Little did I know that many years later I would actually be living for a few months of the year in the very same lands where these pictures were drawn from. It was exciting stuff for a young boy years ago & it's still exciting stuff for that young boy these many years later.
