Agua Fria and a Gila Monster!

It was nice and cool this morning, so we went down to see how the Agua Fria River was flowing. As you can see, it has water but it is a slow flow. That is not surprising since we had a relatively dry winter this year.

On the way back, we came across a Gila Monster. Very cool to see one of these critters out in the field! He wanted to get away from us as quickly as he could. It looked like something had already taken a chunk out of his tail, so I’m sure he didn’t want to take any chances with the likes of us!

Are They Gone Yet?

We left the monster in peace and headed back towards home. The dark sky over the Bradshaw Mountains was warning of rain. Nice to see the stormy skies in late May.
