Ash Creek, Central Arizona
There are several Ash Creeks in Arizona. This one is north of Cordes
Junction. If you're driving I-17 in the fall, this riparian area stands
out as a strip of yellow meandering across the high desert. There
are no trails along the creek so you can wander in complete solitide,
except for maybe a visit by friendly horses (warning: If you give
them even one small treat they'll follow you around for hours).
