A Few More Images – USA 2016

Just getting down to sorting out the vast amount of photo’s taken on the trip to the South Western States of the USA. I have discovered a few gems that I missed when uploading from the hotel room after a day’s travelling and cavorting about with the camera’s. Easily done as sometimes having to balance the laptop on strange surfaces and use very slow  and unpredictable wifi services.

Silver City, New Mexico – The valley that is now the site of Silver City once served as an Apache campsite. With the arrival of the Spaniards, the area became known for its copper mining. After the American Civil War, a settlement developed and became known as la Ciénega de San Vicente (the Marsh of St. Vincent).

Sentinel Peak (Arizona) Sentinel Peak is a 2,897 ft (883 m) peak in the Tucson Mountains southwest of downtown Tucson, Arizona. The valley’s first inhabitants grew crops at the mountain’s base, along the Santa Cruz River. … The peak is part of a 272-acre park, the largest natural resource park in the City of Tucson.
