This time last year there were a lot more people camping here for the winter. Many times more than what I have seen since arriving here in the Quartzite area of Arizona a month ago.
Last week I needed to move, just for the sake of moving, so drove a hundred miles south to Yuma, Arizona. I went to the same place as last year where I hiked around near the border of Mexico finding all the articles cast off by those crossing the border. This time I only found this pair of shoes. It's mate is in the distance in the upper right corner.
And a sweatshirt.
Not my size.
Yuma was even deader than Quartzite so after a few days we went back up north.
Pretty sad when there is nothing to take a picture of but helicopters flying overhead.
