I’ve done many posts featuring the Arroyo Seco (Spanish for “dry stream”) nature area less than three miles from my house. This watershed lies in a canyon with very steep sides. In the summer there is just a trickle of water, and it can be baking hot at the bottom of the canyon. But in our winter rainy season there can be quite an exciting rush of deep water, hence the fence (above) separating people from the flood control channel. This is a wonderful refuge.
