Down on the Farm: Tucson tragedy

Email News Alerts

Saturday was one of those sterling Tucson days that warms one to the core. Still. Sixty-five. Perfectly clear and sunny.

To take advantage, I drove up to the Rillito River, which is dry all but a few days per year, to walk the landscaped trails on the river bank.


The streets were quiet. The ten minute drive only took five.

A perfect Tucson winter day can be cool in the shade. The air is dry and thin.
