Rillito River

Looking north across the dry bed of the Rillito River with the Santa Catalina Mountains in the backround. Tucson has two rivers, the Rillito and the Santa Cruz, both dry for about 100 years but real rivers when the Spanish first arrived here. It can be impressive to see them fill with flood waters when we have heavy rains.

Thanks Sam (I know you meant Tucson :) Sarah I know what you mean. I means a lot to me to see the mountains around me. I lived in Ohio for a period and while there are really nice people there, it was SO flat and I was just miserable. Mountains I can see, mountains I can spend time in, fill some need for me. San Antonio has its charms though. I've been through that area a few times.
