Photo: Citrus Grove Viewing Platform

Some of the homes in the Valley of the Sun are located in former citrus orchards.  The Arcadia area of Scottsdale-Phoenix is one example.  The groves are of Mesa is another.

This is a photo of a backyard in the groves area of Mesa.  The houses are typically on several acres and they include old citrus trees.  They are located near the Falcon Field airport.

The people who have the backyard shown in this photo built a viewing platform in their yard.  This would enable them to see sunsets across the valley, and also to watch the planes take off and land at Falcon Field.   It seems like a very large and sturdy structure for only occasional use.

This week we are showing photos of the Galapagos Islands on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Looks sturdy enough, wonder how it does during one of those wild wind storms.

It seems like a strange thing to have in one's backyard.
