    Valley—sliding down California past Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, and Orange County—to the aptly named city of Phoenix, Arizona. When we arrived, we found a desert brimming with abundance, from horned owls and saguaro cacti to the Fouquieria columnaris. The Fouquieria columnaris? The Fouquieria columnaris is a tree that grows to 50 feet with branches like spiny twigs that stick out at right angles. Short waxy leafs cover the whole thing. It blooms in the summer and fall; the flowers occur in hanging clusters that are a creamy yellow with a honey scent. It is a remarkable looking plant, something my wife compared to an upside down parsnip. The Fouquieria columnaris is not particular about the type of soil in which it is planted, and, as our tour guide at the Phoenix-area Boyce Thompson Arboretum explains, when a specimen was brought north from the Baja peninsula, the first English botanist to lay eyes on it, Godfrey Sykes, thought it so spectacular that it could only resemble the fantasy creature from Lewis Carroll’s nonsensical poem The Hunting of the Snark, and so he dubbed it “Boojum”. It’s fitting that the Boojum name stuck, having been bequeathed in Tucson to a tree endemic to Mexico by man born in England. Arizona is like that. It bears itself with a most unique kind of balance, indescribable except to say that it lacks linearity. About three weeks into our residence, we take a daytrip to Sedona. The Phoenician pilgrimage to Sedona is analogous to the Washingtonian…

    I love the scene when Crysta flew across the trees and flowers, and all the animals and insects sang songs with her, it looks like a wonderland. What’s more, in Pocahontas, natives live in an agricultural society, they stay peacefully with animals, and the try to listen to the sound of the natural environment such as the sound of wind or the sound of trees, the scene when Pocahontas stood on the edge of the mountain and surrounded by soft wind and flying colorful petals, it feels like that the…

    We jumped back of the back and bursted into a run to catch up to him. We followed a trail of trees marked with red paint until we stopped in front of a old oak tree. I looked around and my face fell. I saw Tabby was just as confused as I was. My grandpa laughed and told us to look up. Hidden up in the branches was what looked to be a tree house. I could feel the excitement come over me, but then my grandpa told us to stay where we were. I watch as he climb up into the branches of the mighty oak.…

Reforestation will help to rebuild and restore habitats for many wildlife species, stabilize the CO2 cycle, normalize the water cycle, reduce the soil erosion, and increase the CO2 storage capacity of the trees. Philip provides another potential solution. He mentions that another solution is shifting the human beings to a diet plan that is wholesomely based on plants. This will decrease…

    Spring Time Lewis Grizzard one said, “Springtime is the land awakening. The March winds are the morning yawn.” As winter ends and Spring begins, the wildlife comes out to greet us once more, the weather becomes a pleasure to be in, and fun outside activities begin again. Spring is the most beautiful season of them all; and, I wish it could stay all year. Yawning and hungry from months of hibernation, stinky bears rush to the lake to rinse off the winter days and catch a bite to eat. They…

Starting on the path we both got lost in our own thoughts, I got distracted by looking above me at the the canopy the tree branches created. My eyes followed the patterns the sunlight was creating as it broke through the leaves and cascaded onto the uneven forest floor.
