Monument Fire

So as I am sure you all know, Sierra Vista is being threatened and not being threatened by a fire in the Huachuca Mountains.  Between this fire and the Horseshoe 2 fire in the Chiricahuas,I have not been able to get out.  We are watching and waiting to see what will affect us and what won't. We are helping friends and family as needed because they are being evacuated, hunting down lost animals, it has just been busy these last few days.  If you want to check out the fire head over to!/pages/Monument-fire-az/152424388163732

there are photos, discussions and lots of information.  Watch our for rumors, unless the info is from a valid source they are trying to keep up with deleting them, but with everyone watching this page, rumors are still spreading. 

Everyone be safe, and we will be back to normal as soon as possible.

OK, so I have not posted in almost a month, because I let someones comments get to me, which was stupid.  I decided to do this post because I love photographing old buildings and ghost towns, and because I love history and I wanted to share that with other like minded people. 

I have only had one comment on the blog at this point, and that person wanted to know why I would post something if I had not fully researched something.  The answer is simple, and so not simple.  For one because I have to kids, one not even in school yet, so while I Google the places that I am posting about, or have some knowledge from previous research, I do not have the time or energy to go to libraries and do an in depth search about any of these places.  This is a HOBBY, not a job, I do not get money from my blog, though I would be willing to sell prints of my pictures if someone wanted one.  Reason two is because I want to know what other people have to say about these places, what they have learned about them.  When I got my first comment, I was thrilled, it was like Christmas morning and finding out you got a present under the tree, then I read it and it was a present I so did not want in some ways, yet exactly what I wished for in others.  I was confused, and I let it get to me, stupid, but done with now.  I will try to not be so sensitive, people have the right to their opinions, just like I have the right to mine, but I hope that people can be nice, and can realize that this is not going to be a complete blog, unless they are willing to help to make it one.

Lets all learn together, go on an adventure together, and have fun while doing it.  I hope that that is not to much to ask.
