Southeast Arizona 2012

I typically don't post trip reports, but Arizona was just too good not to.  My buddy Jake and I got over 170 species during the week, including many many lifers (he broke ABA 600 and I broke 550).  Instead of boring you with text, I'll just share some of the pictures I took.
