LIVING IN THE SHADOW OF FROG MOUNTAIN !

Everyone takes their inspiration from the things that surround them or the things that swell up inside of them. I have lived in the shadow of Pusch Ridge for more than thirty years. My morning walks have a bless thirty minute hiatus from the morning sun because the shadow of that tip of the ridge holds back the heat until 6am… In all that time I have depended on the evenings alone with the mountain to be a quiet time to gather strength and to think through what happened today and what will happen tomorrow. In all my years of travel, I have driven through some amazing country, but nothing rivals Tucson surrounded or cradled by the Santa Catalina Range and when I roll in alongside those mountains I finally know I am home.
