… every minute of every day, nature is perfecting its work of art. Rain and wind sculpt the land and earth is removed from hillsides and washed down into streams where water is flowing and the waste products are washed down stream and additional material is removed from the stream beds and slowly it cuts deeper into the earth and the canyon walls increase in height as a result … millions of years pass as the process continues and here is the current state of the project at the confluence of Sycamore Creek and the Verde River … stay tuned, it is a work in progress.
Sycamore Creek is flowing to the south from the lower right into Verde River near the upper right which is flowing from right to left. We have added some touches too in the way of roads and a rail road track that runs along the upper side of the Verde River. The primary dirt road that comes in from the left side is accessed near Tuzigoot about eleven miles downstream and there is a parking lot at its terminus overlooking Sycamore Creek. Never been there, probably never will, but it looks nice.
Into the weekend, have a good one and share your joy with those you meet … family, friends and passerby’s. A smile will do the trick!
Cheers, back Monday morning
So each one to his wish, and as for me,
I sit tonight and wait
To find the answers to my soul in me,
And in the beauty of the sky and sea.
