As I mentioned in a previous entry, if I didn't know better I'd think I was in Arizona. The palm trees and other vegetation remind me of Scottsdale. Even the dirt is quite red like it is in the Phoenix area. I believe that that is due to the high iron content. Another thing that is quite interesting is the size of the rock formations. I've only got a few pictures of those so far, but they have a very Sedona-like look to them. Some are quite large and uniquely shaped. Unfortunately, many are getting blasted away in order to make room for the new construction. I would have hoped that there would have been a way to integrate the rocks into the overall design as I think that it would be quite striking that way. An interesting contrast of the natural and man made.
