Nice way to spend a Sunday. A friend of Brians' came with, he had hiked in this area years ago. I called it Eric's canyon. We were on the Reddington Pass road last year and I saw the mouth of this canyon in the twilight with flowing water issuing from it after a big storm on the Catalinas. I thought it looked beautiful and interesting, so wanted to explore.

The car approach is somewhat interesting, you need 4wd and HC for sure, sandy, and prepare for some pinstriping on your vehicle. At the canyon mouth ATV's can go up a little bit then the canyon clamps down. Some short narrows in colorful limestone, one about 7-8 foot boulder choke to get over, and a few pools to wade. Then the canyon opens up with saguaros and greenery and bedrock. There are some springs, most of the pools were stagnant, but the amount of driftwood indicates some happening floods in here. Little frogs galore. Saw a blue racer snake, my camera spent half the time on some weird setting so a lot of my photos did not turn out.
The riparian area makes it seem jungle like, with huge huge sycamores, cottonwoods, and a small stream from a spring. We hiked to where the cliffs scaled back and it was more open with gentle desert slopes. Getting hot we turned back, and at the end of the day we did a little four wheeling to Chimney rock area and some photography with storm clouds all around.

This canyon is named for a Tucson photographer who was prominent politically and settled in Tucson in the late 1800's Henry Buehman.
