Picture of the Month - March, 2004


Spring in the Tucson Area


On March 20, 2004, we welcome spring in the Northern Hemisphere. The Vernal Equinox has been celebrated for centuries in the Southwest. On the Equinox this spear of sunlight crosses an ancient solar symbol carved by a Native American. This marker has survived for a millennium.
