Fantastic scenery once again, even though it was very cloudy, with rain chance hovering around 45%. Is that SNOW????
Yessiree....at about 7,000 feet, you start seeing snow. Lots of it! Sparky gets so excited!
Wonderful picnic areas on the side of Mount Lemmon. You can see why this drive is called "Sky Islands". Perfect name for it!
|Arroyo Del Fuerte|
Here is a bridge over an arroyo--a steep sided gully formed by fast flowing water that seasonally fills and flows after heavy rains...found mainly in the southwest. A wash is very similar, it's a dry bed of a stream that fills and flows only occasionally or seldom. It's usually in a ravine or canyon. They pretty much mean the same and so are now used interchangeably.
