Corduroy Creek, Arizona
Corduroy Creek is on the Fort Apache Reservation in eastern
Arizona. Filled with ash, sycamore and cottonwood trees, the
waterway becomes a beautiful river of color every autumn. Like
so many places on Native American land, there are no hiking trails,
visitor centers, restrooms, ramadas or parking lots. The creek is
wonderfully wild, yet open to anyone with a recreation permit. I
wish more wild places were managed in the exact same way.
