January canyon blogging
We took a hike last week into Espiritu Canyon, in the Rincon mountains east of Tucson. After meandering a few miles up the canyon, we had lunch at a large water tank, where the windmill had fallen into complete disrepair, but had been replaced by a solar powered pump, visible to the left of the windmill. Odd to see such modern technology so far from anything resembling civilization (although there were lots of cows scattered around — which made for careful stepping).
