Did some rapid descending yesterday to get to the East Verde River, on of the main water ways in northern Arizona
The river valley is deep and beautiful
I spent most of the day wondering what parts of the higher elevations in AZ hadn’t burned to the ground in the last 20 years.
Much of the northern forest has been pushed to the sky islands and now even the sky islands are turning into new environments. Where are the ponderosa pines and the Douglas firs gonna go?
On the positive side the new growth has a beauty of its own
I love to find the beauty in nature and every day there is plenty
I shared my tent site with some agaves last night.
Now I’m in Pine, AZ fattening up
Let’s hear it for the great state of Arizona!!!
