My late father-in-law used to love to watch the herons outside his family room windows, which overlooked a lake where he and my late mother-in-law lived in Leisure World in Mesa, Arizona, about 15 miles east of Scottsdale. (When they passed away and we were no longer responsible to take care of them, we moved from Mesa to Scottsdale/Paradise Valley about 10 years ago).
Today is Sunday, so we have new photos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week we return to the stark landscape of the Atacama Desert in the Andes of northern Chile. It provides quite a contrast to the Arizona desert.
