    and don't you just love how the LC Gorge cracks its way toward that big expanse ahead of its drainage, the abyss, where both rivers merge? I love that flat-planed counter top landscape, deeply incised, and looking like what a canyon typically looks like. Then all of a sudden, wham. . .the GRAND Canyon that doesn't even look like a canyon, except the main corridor. If you've ever hiked the LC Gorge, and I have, let me tell you, it's an experience (and quicksand in places. . .not good).  Thanks, as always, Bisbonian, for your comments and support. Means a lot, it does.

      •  you mean those crazy snakes. . . (3+ / 0-)

        the black-tipped rattlers, when you walk near them they freeze, like lightening bolts, just like a cartoon, and after passing they slither away? AM I FAMILIAR WITH ARIVAIPA? HA! Yes, very much. And I take it you're talking about that lovely setting near Oracle (Abbey's other world, you see.) I loved backpacking there. Only twice, but both very good times. Love rattle snakes, anyway, even those funny kind you folks have done there. (Just don't step on 'em. . .they tend to do more than rattle a warning, I'm told.)
