[2][letterhead]We have a lovely camp under a juniper with yuca and cactus plants in bloom all around us. It seems strange to have cactus and juniper together and I can't seem to get used to having to bring muddy water by the bucket full but the view and the fine air more than compensate for the dryness. Day after tomorrow we are going to the petrified forest. All of [Arizona?] that I have seen is wonderfully interesting and facinating, the desert as much so as any of the rest and the air makes one feel as if they couldn't have anything the matter with their lungs if they tried to.Papa keeps finding people that he knows and the circle around our camp fire08549
