|The slide show on the CD-ROM
documents the natural beauty of the El Paso area through more than 250
photos. El Paso, located in the center of the Chihuahua Desert, is home
to a large number of beautiful cacti. Many different blooming cacti, other
blooming plants, and fascinating animals are shown together with some of
the highlights of El Paso city. They are testimony to the colorful and
picturesque ambience of the El Paso area. All photos were taken within
the city limits of El Paso and show the plants and animals in their natural
habitat. The richness of the natural history of El Paso is a treasure that
is still under-appreciated and deserves more attention and protection.
The photgraphers, Gertrud and Ad Konings, are
both biologists and live in El Paso. The music on the CD-ROM was provided
by the Coronado HS Orchestras directed by Ida Steadman. A selection of
16 wallpapers (max 1024x768pix) offers the opportunity to choose your favorite
El Paso scene for your desktop.
Program on CD-ROM is made for Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2000/XP
The high quality photos are best viewed in true
color. The show takes approximately 25 minutes and can be paused at any
point. The wallpapers are in a separate directory and can either be copied
directly from the CD or installed with help of the program on the CD-ROM.
