Garden Canyon

ARIZONA AGAVES
These were taken in late February of 2007.

The Agaves were looking a little haggard but they were still
dormant at this time of year. Besides we did have somewhat of
a cold December which didn't help matters.

One thing I did notice was that a lot of them had suffered
damage from being grazed on. Usually I don't see that very
often.

Garden Canyon lies in the Huachuca Mountains, in Fort
Huachuca. The canyon is well maintained by the fort. It boasts
a variety of plant and wildlife.

The canyon is home to many ongoing archaeological studies,
especially at a prehistoric village near the opening of the
canyon.

You can see rock paintings at higher elevations in the canyon.
Some of the art is dated back to 1200 AD. And there is a white
eagle painting believed to be done by Apaches in the 18th
century.
