Entrada

While driving along the I-10 in southeastern Arizona, you go through a short stretch of incredibly beautiful landscape called Texas Canyon. Tucked away just  to the north is a small town called Dragoon (Pop. 109). There is the beautiful Amerind Research Library and Museum, and this entryway is on the grounds, although the gate is not really turquoise.

Stone Wheels

These huge stone wheels (old millstones) can be found all over the grounds at the Tubac Presidio Historic Park, many with varied carved designs. Two wheels would be mounted horizontally on a center post – one was secured and the other could rotate above it – turned by horses or donkeys tethered to a crossbar. The grain was ground between the two wheels.
