Took a couple hours this Morning and made a trek to the Box Canyon of the Hassayampa River. Just about 6 miles as the crow-flies from my front door!
Early Morning that is the Sun reflecting on my helmet.
Jumping Cholla ! To be avoided at all times. This was almost toooo close.
Dropping into the dry riverbed...
Not sure if I ran over this snake or not but you can see by the tracks he expedited his getaway... Pretty li'l King Snake !
First water... down-stream approach
Looking downstream... The tube-thingy with the antenna registers the flow of the river. Warning for flash-floods downstream!
Hole all the way across near the up-stream end of the box. Approximately 3' deep in the center and no quick-sand this time of year
Loop'n home... Vulture Peak between the Saguaro's...
Hope you enjoyed my morning ride
