The Enduring Desert Early one June morning I came upon several coyotes on a golf green near Tucson. I throttled back and circled to watch them. They seemed to be playing like friendly dogs, occa sionally stopping to lap at pools of water from irrigation sprinklers.

Even in our most manicured spaces, the desert renews itself. 0 How did author Adriel Heisey photograph the Sonoran Desert while piloting a 450-pound plane?
