Used To Be

The Hueferno River lies 3/4 of a mile away. There is no canyon like this there. This is six miles north.
Running water made this and walking along the rim you will occasionally see a bit of dampness or a small pool. There is a trickle a mile or so to the south of here and the width is much much smaller than here.

The canyon pictures above were taken at the tree line. It used to be windmills such as this one for pumping water were found quite often. Not so much anymore as like the river itself water is very scarce here. Many people have to haul theirs.
If you click on the picture above twice and look closely on the horizon we're pumping something other these days. These went up very quickly.


  1. Luv the header. Hard to imagine a river running thru that first pic. Geez...

    1. I don't know if or when this river flowed this wide. A gully washer would make it run this wide. The river bed down here is pretty wide in places but where the water is and has been flowing for a long long time is maybe15-20 feet wide.

    2. The sunrises have been pretty cool lately.

  2. Wow!

    You are really rocking out now.

    Love ya,
