Since 2009, the retirement home of Shot On Site Photography... the source of some of the finest sighthound performance images in the world. The Hare-Brained At Home blog will keep fans and clients and other interested parties up to date on our schedule, and will post images from their homestead in the foothills of the Little Florida Mountains, and surrounding environs. We'll also post anecdotes, travel tips, political rants, and any other thing that pops into our fertile brains.

Yesterday was a "tourist" day. We decided to revisit the Whitewater Creek Catwalk, in the Gila National Wilderness. We went last year in the midst of the 5 year drought. Not a lot of water in the creek at that time. We thought... wrongly as it turned out... that with all the recent rain and snow in the area, that there would be a whole lot more water this time. While the level was up slightly, it didn't quite thrill like a roaring torrent would. The record water level in the canyon is about 6 feet above the catwalk floor level, and about 20 feet above what you see here. Judging by the washout areas on the access road, we were a few weeks late.
The canyon is characterized by high, steep rock walls, and massive boulders in the streambed.
A little closeup detail of one of the many falls in the canyon.
