Oak Creek Canyon, Arizona

May 21, 2014.

     In April we hiked a small portion of the trail in Oak Creek Canyon looking for spring wildflowers.  This area is unusual (for Arizona) in its shady dampness along the creek, perfect for violets and other magical forest blooms, fairy pools,and moss covered rocks. Add to that the imposing red rock formations running along the side of the canyon and the scene is inspiring.

     I heard the news last night that a wild fire has consumed a portion of this special place--my thoughts go out to the animals, plants, and people who call this beautiful area home.

 

Moss--a rare find in the desert.

 

Fairy cattails...

 Red rock cliffs above the creek.

 

 And a cave to explore.

You should go up and see first hand the fire's results; then post results. Can I come?

Great picture. Can you recall the story of her character she's playing?
