Two Guns, Arizona. Road-weary, pulling off at a randomly chosen exit sign in the desert midway to flagstaff, we found ourselves in an eerie non-place.

Later, we discovered this to be the remains of a zoo, constructed over “apache death caves" on the edge of "Canyon Diablo" in the first half of the last century.
