Introduction: As a retire entomologist, I often make field trips to collect and photograph grasshoppers and cicadas in the US southwest. I have decided to write up many of the things I find along the way. Reports, while focusing on grasshoppers and cicadas, include many other aspects of natural history, and attractions along the way. Information on insect collecting and travel presented may be useful to others passings these ways.
