    The branches of the tree on the right border of the picture look like a pine. Could it be a pinus oocarpa (egg cone pine) a pine that normally grows in the sonoran desert?

    1. It’s not a pine tree, it’s a palo verde tree. If you look carefully or can zoom in, you should be able to see that the bark of the tree is green.

    I haven’t been able to zoom in. I copied to another tab and couldn’t zoom it there either. Anyway, question answered. Thanks.

    1. Just FYI, and in case you didn’t know alreayd, and assuming you are viewing the post on a PC (rather than a phone or Apple computer), then holding down the control key and pressing the + key will enlarge the view. Press multiple times for more enlargement. And of course using the minus key instead will make it smaller. You probably knew that but just in case I thought I’d mention it. Also, I should point out that the enlargement doesn’t necessarily make details easier to see. It depends on resolution etc.

    Unfortunately, if I ever knew it I forgot it. Thanks. Also, after looking at Patriots dream in this series, I realized the structure and distribution of the palo verde in the desert there much better.

    1. I became familiar with palo verde trees back when I lived in Tucson where there are lots if them. But in Ajo they seem to be even more prevalent, to the point of possibly being the dominant tree species in town and the surrounding hilly area. Our on the flats though mesquite still dominates I think.
