A Wash Runs In the Desert
29 February 2008 | Tucson
Who says there's no running water in southern, Arizona. The wash has been running for months. I've never experienced anything like it in all my years here. It comes from the Catalina mountains to the north of us. The weather conditions this past Fall and Winter have put an incredible amount of water up there. This is where it runs on its way down into the valley of the sun. The County has constructed large concrete sides to this watershed and upon these are the graded trails that we walk almost daily. Jake has been loving the water, no matter how cold. For months, I've been toweling them dry and clean when we get home from the back of the truck. My floors are not so thrilled anymore either.
