[The Mighty San Pedro]

Near San Pedro House, San Pedro National Riparian Area, Arizona, July 30, 2012

The San Pedro River is often more of a creek, but today it was wide and full. Some trails I have previously walked here were under water, and others were partly flooded or muddy. Once upon a time, before the water table was lowered, steamboats ran on the San Pedro. Today, one could almost expect a steamboat to appear.
