Out for a morning constitutional, I spotted a sign with an intriguing name (Radar Station Road!), and then an obviously misplaced spherical object stuck on a hilltop nearby. Locally called “the golf ball”, it is perhaps forever waiting for a sufficiently-sized Colossus to drive it into the Grand Canyon or perhaps shank it toward the pit at Morenci; meanwhile it provides navigational services to bide its time and remain somewhat useful.

Along the way, a variety of pinecones, members of the Rudbeckia family, lots of butterflies, and that high-altitude New Mexico blend of scents, invigorating and clearing.
