Just outside Tucson in the Sonora Desert is the famed Airplane Graveyard-Bone Yard at Davis Monthan Airforce Base. This is where the U.S. Air Force mothballs planes until they either need them again or it's time to salvage them for parts. They are all capable of being returned to service if the need ever arises. It's difficult to comprehend the size of the 'Bone yard' and the number of aircraft stored there.
Remember - Each one of these babies had a multimillion dollar price.
Crossed a section of desert with a 'forest' of Saguaro Cacti. We also saw some cotton fields when getting close to Yuma - I didn't know that they grew cotton in Arizona. I was also told that Yuma and Florida supply almost all the produce for the states. We saw huge produce farms on the way in to Yuma - it's amazing what they can grow once they add water to this desert area.
