There are washes, and then there are washes which are also canyons. I followed one of the latter and ended up in an oasis. Yup, in Arizona in the summertime. As you can see by the barely waning moon still far from setting, we started early. To get there the easy way, park at the Gabe Zimmerman Trailhead and walk east following the Arizona Trail.

While I walked there, the canyon is accessible by car via Colossal Cave. The Arizona Trail runs through PQ and crosses the now-dry Agua Verde River bed on its way. Lovely spot, however you might get there.
