Another Day...

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


The Box...


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
