From the issue: “A violent storm showers the desert with lightning bolts.” The issue included several more storm photos, along with a story about how University of Arizona scientists were researching new ways to pinpoint lightning strikes. Photo by William L. Wantland.
From the issue: “The clean desert winds and vast size of Lake Mohave on the Colorado River make for ideal sailing conditions.” Those are the Black Mountains in the background, we think. Photo by Alan Benoit.
From the issue: “Glen Canyon Bridge, 700 feet above the Colorado River, is the highest steel arch bridge in the world. Its 1,271-foot length gracefully and spectacularly spans the Glen Canyon of the Colorado.” The bridge is still in use today as part of U.S. Route 89. Photo by Dick Carter.
From the issue: “The striking study of the old Indian chief on our cover page was taken in the land of the Pueblos, the Moqui Country, many years ago.” The issue was almost entirely comprised of portraits of Arizona’s Native Americans. It doesn’t mention who took this photo, though.
