  • BLM | Coyote Crossing
    yards apart yet we could hear each other s normal speaking voices perfectly That afternoon I found a comfortable looking spot in the wash shaded by a bit of ironwood and laid down for a nap shifting my back to gouge out a depression in the gravel I opened my eyes for a moment saw nothing but a few ironwood leaves silhouetted against an impossibly blue sky then dozed Not a few minutes later something soft brushed my cheek and I started awake Eyes the color of polished ironwood gleamed Becky had kissed me The image of my wife s face bean tree leaves behind her deep blue firmament framing all would prove to haunt me through months of desultory wood carving Things picked up a bit when the sun went down A wind came up from the south bearing the slightest odor of the Sea of Cortez Zeke our dog noticed a desert packrat or two whose stick homes we had missed among the fallen trees Far off coyote song punctured the twilight the local great horned owl providing a bass line After dark the valley was palpably alive I sat by a fire We were far remote there was an abundance of dead wood in the wash and I wanted a fire so the first two clauses in this sentence seemed sufficient justification Ironwood burns hot A pile of fuel the size of a regulation softball and we couldn t get closer than ten feet to the blaze With wood like that you don t need much fire The next morning half the small pile of scraps I d collected lay unburned next to the coals I grabbed a few and put them in the truck They ve sat near my computer since then I pick up one of the larger pieces now a rough splintery crescent a foot long four or five inches wide at its thickest It looks weathered old rotten yet it weighs at least three pounds I heft the wood in my hand I can t be sure this stick is a millennium and a half old but I can t rule it out either When did this piece of wood die When did its tree release it into the desert soil there to bleach and suffer futile attacks by termites 1500 years ago the Anasazi were just learning how to add roofs to their adobe houses Augustine was writing his Confessions The Roman Empire had collapsed within living memory And this stick perhaps or one just like it in the same valley was already turning gray on that alluvial pediment west of Blythe Essentially non biodegradable these few pieces of dead tree straddle the line between biology and geology A tree grew them but they may as well be rocks for all the effect that the centuries have on them Driftwood hell it s just as likely that I found these pieces where they fell and the ironwood grove drifted away from them over the intervening millennium The immense antiquity of this firewood makes my collection of it seem in retrospect abhorrent like the actions of the guy who cut down the world s oldest bristlecone pine to count the rings But there is something in the desert ironwood that seems to ask for more than simple Euclidean geometry which naggingly reminds me that issues are never as straightforward as ideology would insist Who would criticize the Seri for turning ironwood detritus into grocery money Ironwood supported human beings long before the first Seri carver ever saw a chisel Leached of a mild toxin ironwood seeds were used for centuries as food by the Seri the Tohono O odham and other Sonoran Desert people Warriors and hunters used ironwood bark tea as a ceremonial purgative When an O odham couple married elders gave them an ironwood branch to hold between them so that the wood s durability would infuse itself into the marriage Though we ve done it some wrong the past few decades this is a tree whose memory is long and it was deeply involved in human lives long before the invention of the four way file and the chain steakhouse I look again at the piece I ve been carving I won t be collecting any more and I certainly won t insist on a fire when I m camping in ironwood country but giving this piece to my wife seems somehow appropriate a way to infuse this marriage with the permanence ironwood engenders A bit of dark wood and the knowledge that more grows protected in the heart of the Sonoran Desert Share this Email Like this Like Loading

northeast of Las Vegas in one of the least visited parts of the continental United States a desert treasure in Nevada needs your support I visited Gold Butte for the first time in 1997 I was just passing through heading for a tiny outpost in the Arizona Strip called Pakoon Springs which later became part of the Grand Canyon Parashant National Monument A fire there had damaged a Joshua tree forest some years before and I wanted to take a look at the recovery so far My old truck carried me up over the slopes of Virgin Peak and across the state line where I took some photos that turned out to be abysmally fuzzy The fire had burned patches of the landscape but not all of it Much of it looked intact In this shot taken facing eastward into the Arizona Strip the long ridge in the background is the Grand Wash Cliffs escarpment The notch in the Cliffs toward the right That s the downstream end of a rather famous natural landscape feature My old truck was a four cylinder 2WD so
