Dad spent most of his life trying to separate myth from fantasy and his camera always proved a reliable tool in that quest. He once wrote:
“Many people who have never been to Arizona think of it as only a land of desert. Yet, two thirds of our state is covered with forest. In fact, the largest stand of Ponderosa Pine in the world is in Arizona. When the snow falls the northern portion of our state becomes a veritable ‘winter wonderland’.
This photograph is but one of many he took to justify his contention that Arizona was a lady with a vast and variegated seasonal wardrobe.
