Seven Falls lies in NE Tucson and is a prized wonder in the middle of the Sonoran Desert. Over the past five or six years, the falls has withered to a trickle due to recent drought conditions. This month, with above average precipitation and snow melt, the falls is now at full splendor. With this vision in mind, I set out this afternoon to visit the falls, but was slowed by the heavy stream flow and the need to ford the stream in a number of places. In the pictures, you can see how the trail begins as a paved road, than a major path that than narrows to a footpath. Along the way, I spotted one lady putting plastic bags around her shoes to wade through the water. How ingenious I thought, as I went forward with my shoes tied around my neck! Perhaps next time!
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
