Living in downtown Des Moines since March of 2006; working there for the better part of the last twenty-plus years. When free of work I enjoy television, surfing the web, walking the earth, cooking, libations, and movies with friends. A committed non-driver I’ve learned to get around this world without the immediate gratification that four wheels and a tank of gas provides. I travel as time and finances allow, mostly via train. Many friends peppered across the American Southwest, so I try to visit when possible.

Riktor rocker's mural in Slc

Peaceful scenery in nice contrast.


A beautiful picture, but this is not an agave. It may be a Dasylirion wheeleri, sometimes known as the "Desert Spoon", or the "Sotol Yucca" (though, it is not actually a "yucca", either). Dasylirion species are sometimes used to make Sotol, a distilled spirit produced in a manner very similar to way agaves are used to make mezcal in Mexico. These desert mountains are filled with such wonderful surprises! :)

Well put, as any who wander these trackless desert mountains can attest.

l'origine e ignoto. Il corpo fu poi portato in chiesa. Mogu i na Srpsko-Hrvatski da vam prevedem... :)
