Kathy and I heard about a nice drive we could take down into a canyon to Clear Creek, just a few miles down SR 260. It started out as a dirt road off the state route, then became a dirt trail, then became a “rock” trail and finally down around through a lot of tight switchbacks to the “Bullpen” Day Use Area. The creek is flowing fiercely since the snow melt is rushing through every crack and crevice it can find. You can hear the rushing water in the video below.
The ground is soaking up the liquid sunshine and still plenty of water rushing by to the rivers and irrigation ditches.
We are continually fascinated by all the beauty there is to see here in Arizona and although we’re excited about our next trip (east to Florida, Ohio, Michigan) we’ll certainly miss the beauty around us here and especially the friends we’ve made.
