Views From The Border Line

It’s Biden’s Wall Now


If you’re traveling down to the north country fair
The winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine. ~~~ Girl From The North Country, Bob Dylan

[Update: 3/20/22 – Nothing’s changed under Biden, the suffering is only getting worse:

Update: 4/10/21 – Sickening:

[Update 3/10/21: Like I said, it’s Biden’s Wall now:

Which suggests that, just like arbitrary borders, notions of North and South are relative and depend on location, no?


Where exactly is that “girl from the north country”? (or the “sad eyed lady of the lowlands”?)

Here’s what I saw recently at the US – Mexico “Across the borderline” (Ry Cooder):

There’s a place where I’ve been told
Every street is paved with gold
And it’s just across the borderline
And when it’s time to take your turn
Here’s a lesson that you must learn

The only positive news I can report is that the US Customs and Border Patrol inspection stations on Arizona State Rt. 85 between Ajo and the border and Ajo and Gila Bend were closed.

The station between Ajo and the border was almost completely disabled and abandoned, far more so than the station to the north (at Mile 18), which curiously had the US flag at half staff on Tuesday March 2. I wonder why that was? Was it a symbol of insubordination?

We’ll present our view from north to south, along Arizona State highway 85, from Ajo to Lukeville:




Ride the snake
Ride the snake
To the lake
To the lake
The ancient lake baby
The snake is long
Seven miles
Ride the snake
He’s old
And his skin is cold
The west is the best
The west is the best
Get here and we’ll do the rest. ~~~ The End (Doors)

Now, aren’t you glad to be back in the good ole USA? Gas, beer, restrooms….


[End Note: I’ve been along the border region for the last 4 years, from Big Bend Texas to San Diego, California. Here are some prior posts and lovely photos:
