Nature takes over


June 11, 2006

While near Tucson, Ariz., last summer, my husband and I saw a wildfire burning out of control in the Santa Rita Mountains. The Florida Fire, as it was called, was started by lightning and continued to burn as more than 250 firefighters battled to control it. The contrast between the peacefulness of the golf course at Quail Creek Community and the ferocity of the fire made me realize how Mother Nature controls both extremes of our world.
