Photos of the new Arivaca Tower

J. Otto Pohl at Otto's Random Thoughts has a link to photos of the Arivaca Tower, which was constructed in just a few days this week. (For the background on this story, please read the following series of posts: SBI#1, SBI#2, and SBI#3.)

The tower is not yet operational, but local citizens are planning to thwart all of the cameras, radar and GPS technology by making full use of recreational land in the immediate vicinity of the tower.
Just a mile and a half from Main Street, it's a perfect place to hike, bike, birdwatch, target practice, picnic, and hold drumming ceremonies on the sacred space it abuts. Let's have some fun!
It will be interesting to see what impact this form of protest will have on the tower's effectiveness in preventing illegal border crossing.

I put up a link to a blog by local Arivacans devoted to the Arivaca Tower. The blog is called Southwind Dancer. I thought you might be interested in it.
