photoblog image Oak Creek

Oak Creek

 Oak Creek is a tributary of the Verde River.  It flows along the bottom of the canyon,

and is one of the few perennial streams in the high desert  region of northern Arizona.

Oak Creek is largely responsible for carving the modern Oak Creek Canyon,

although movement along the Oak Creek Fault, a 30-mile (48 km) long

north–south normal fault line, is thought to have played a role as well.

I can almost hear it burbling along, Elizabeth...it is mumbling something like "A Creek's work is never done!".

Water is responsible for shaping a lot of the planet.
excellent couple of shots, Elizabeth. i find the top image so very serene and the clarity of the lower shot is rather pleasing.

Yes there can't be many perennial streams up there in that dry land
Some pictures to help cool us off. Thank you.
I like these two shots very much, especially the lower one. I see there was an awful flash flood tragedy in Arizona over the weekend, how awful.
