It seems that except empty, desert areas there are some farms on a desert as well.
Hmm... if you water the land... Or maybe there are cattle farms exclusively there. Look at my picture to see the pickup truck and its load: isn't it food for the cattle?
There are quite many commercials atop tall pales in Marana - like usual in the USA (and Europe as well) - just to be seen from farer distance.
At this one on my picture you can read:
La Tumbleewed Lounge
Hmm... what does it mean?
Lounge is a comfortable room for sitting in as I know (in a hotel for example) but La Tumbleewed Lounge is a proper name for a restaurant in Marana.
Carry Outs - does it mean that you can carry your food bought in La Tumbleewed Lounge out and eat it later (in a car or picnic area for example)?
Games? Hmm... what games? Slot machines or what? Chess? :-)
Look at another landart (is it correct name?) example from Marana. It looks quite nice, don't you think so?
Do they love to make such land areas there? Made (paid) by private business or a city? Hmm... I don't know.
Notice no flowers there, no wonder - they didn't use to "waste" water there, I suppose.
Saguaro cactus is an official flower of Arizona.
It seems that each USA state has it's own official flower, bird and... what else? Btw I love that idea - I just think which bird and flower could it be in Poland :-).
From my friend Nat:(b1bob):
That depends on each state. Some just have a motto, flower, and bird. Others have the motto, flower and bird plus fish, insects, and even an official snack (Illinois: popcorn).
Thank you Nat.
Wear good glasses, enlarge my picture and look.
What a lovely composition (landart?) of local cactuses, wood and... an ugly pale in the middle with La Tumbleewed Lounge commercial atop.
Hmm... made by local artist? :-))).
