Sited on a secluded mesa, two miles from the nearest highway, residents at Arcosanti
enjoy a pristine habitat right at their doorstep. This exposure fosters a keen
sense of responsibility in maintaining a clean environment. We fastidiously recycle
and reuse everything we can, and in the the spirit of stewardship, we also participate in the Adopt A Highway Program,
maintaining a section of Highway 17, near our exit at Cordes Junction. The prize
this time around for most unusual object found by the highway-side?: a full box
of Viagra. Photo and text by Benjamin Ericson.
