Photo: Fountain Hills from a Distance
When the fountain was first installed in 1970, it was the world's tallest fountain. It is now fourth. It makes about as much sense to install the world tallest fountain in the Arizona desert as it does to reconstruct the London Bridge in Arizona, and both were the projects of Robert McCulloch of the chainsaw company that bears his name, who was a developer of both Fountain Hills and Lake Havasu, Arizona.
My stop son, Stuart, took this photo while on a hike in the McDowell Mountains, which border Scottsdale on the northeast. Fountain Hills is a suburb right over the other side of the mountains.
This week we are showing photos of Raboul, Papua New Guinea on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. It is the former capitol, but has been destroyed by volcanic eruptions.
