Reilly & I were wandering around Scottsdale getting our favorite coffee [Cartel] & favorite eats [Chop Shop] & we found a rad old book store full of tons of really old editions with the coolest covers you’ve ever seen. And then.. I found it…
Never did I think I would find a book that was ›so me‹ I would have thought that I wrote it.
As it turns out, Cactus & Pine is just that. Written by the Arizona adventurer & explorer Sharlot M. Hall. [i.e. my new personal hero] Born in 1870 she was first lady to hold office in the Arizona Territory government & her personal collection of photographs and artifacts served as the starting collection for a history museum which bears her name. Can’t wait to go to Prescott & see all the she was up to!
Looks like we have a lot in common, I think we would have been great friends.
This book was found in Old Town Scottsdale, Arizona & photographed in my front yard in Sedona, Arizona [ N 33° 29′ 49.8368″ +W 111° 55′ 36.2719″
