Sabino creek has two ducks.

Winter rains and spring

Snowmelt on the mountains

Increasing the streamflow

Of a frequently dry creek

Attracting additional waterfowl.

There’s no remaking reality…

Just take it as it comes.

Hold your ground and

take it as it comes.

There’s no other way.

“Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit,
and as vital to our lives as water and good bread.
A civilization which destroys what little remains of the wild,
the spare, the original, is cutting itself off from its origins
and betraying the principle of civilization itself.”

— Edward Abbey

Spring Morning

O day—if I could cup my hands and drink of you,
And make this shining wonder be
A part of me!
O day! O day!
You lift and sway your colors on the sky
Till I am crushed with beauty. Why is there
More of reeling sunlit air
Than I can breathe? Why is there sound
In silence? Why is a singing wound
About each hour?
And perfume when there is no flower?
O day! O Day! How may I press
Nearer to loveliness?

In this age of the Novel Coronavirus, things are changing day by day, moment by moment. I just got word that the Sabino Canyon Visitor Center and parking lot have been close to the public. However, since Sabino Canyon is in the Coronado National Forest, access is still available through the Overflow Parking Lot north of the Canyon’s main entrance. A fee tube is located there that accepts exact change for an $8.00 day-use pass. At least, for now, we can still experience springtime in the Canyon.
