Biosphere 2 Historical League trip

Anne Lupica and Deb Hester at the ocean
From rainforest to savannah, roaring ocean to desert, with tropical flowers, giant breathing lungs, two acre basement containing miles of tubing, high and low pressure wind area and so much more . . . Biosphere 2 was indeed a fascinating stop on our three day tour of SE Arizona. Full of facts and statistics. "A conceptual and engineering marvel, it was created to study ecosystem processes under controlled conditions, but at large scales."
We even checked out the gift shop to see if they might want to stock Tastes and Treasures II: A Storytelling Cookbook of Historic Arizona.

Tastes & Treasures II in Globe, AZ

Tastes & Treasures II is now at Gila Co. Historical Society Museum thanks to Norma Hinton. She showed Sheldon Miller the book with pages featuring early Globe/Miami history. Norma has page 149 telling of her Clements family ancestors with a recipe for Cornish Pasties. Our first volume also talked about Globe/Miami with Rose Mofford and her family's Cornish Pasties. A big part of early Arizona history and copper mining is found in Globe, AZ.
