Sycamore Canyon – Parsons Trail, Stream in Context

This was my destination when I was on the road and spotted the fire on the desert morning mountains in an earlier post…Parsons Trail in Sycamore Canyon.Β  You might remember that I visited here in March of 2015…before Spring had sprung…that’s over five years ago, already.

More images will follow, of course, but I hope you’ll enjoy these three…all taken from the same spot, more or less, accounting for shifting feet…

…starting with a closer look down the stream beneath the canopy of overhanging trees…

…and then slowly widening the view to encompass more of the surroundings.

Yes, this is Arizona…just north of Cottonwood…which is north and east of Prescott…and a bit south and west of Sedona…if you’re familiar with those places.

  3. Oh! such a refreshing look at all that moisture. It’s been too dry here of late. And getting too warm as well. Not that it compares to your region in that respect. Still… I can’t seem to keep from muttering. πŸ˜‰

    • So very refreshing, Gunta…and it was 117 a couple of days last week…that’s just ugly and makes me mutter, as well. πŸ˜‰
