Wet Beaver Creek, AZ

October 24, 2018

On our four wheel drive trip, we were in search of fall color and water in the creeks due to heavy rains in the past month.  Who said the desert is always dry?  We traveled up I-17 and got off at the Sedona exit, only we went east instead of to Sedona.  This is the Wet Beaver Creek area.  First we went on a little side trip and saw the creek with many cottonwoods and sycamore trees.  From a higher elevation the creek is well defined by the trees!

I will give you a little sample of the pools with great reflections in the creeks that we found.

An even more impressive find was at Walker Creek where the water had worn a slot in the sandstone.

As we continue, we can drive up to the Bull Pen area with lots of trees but no pools of water.  The view from the top was also impressive.

    Glad to have you back!

    Your photos are super. It is amazing how similar yours and mine are. I guess that means we are both master photographers.

    See you soon

  2. One does not usually associate anything wet with Arizona.  But you have captured the beauty along with the wetness of those mountains.  Good to see that you are continuing with your adventures and searching the beauty of the surrounding areas.  Hope you are both well and that Joann is feeling better and stronger each day, Susan
