I wanted to see this area in the summer versus the dead look of the cold season. Like so many places in southern Arizona after a month of generous monsoon storms, things were really flowing and growing! :D Of course one of the reasons to head down was to continue my quest to find the wild chiltepin plants that grow in the area. Based on research and previous visits, I had a plan as to where to look. Unfortunately, the approach to the wash I wanted to get down into was so choked with vines, weeds, grasses, etc. that it would not have been smart to blast through it and risk a snakebite (or ankle twist from hidden rocks). I searched for a possible way, but after awhile just decided to drive over to the main Rock Corral Canyon section.

I was surprised by the healthy flow of water there. I didn't drive too far in, as there are some stream crossings that I didn't feel like dealing with today. Not too mention it was very humid and getting quite warm. So after some fun light exploring, it was off to Dos in Tubac for lunch. Things there are overpriced, but that's just the way it is around Tubac. I didn't mind, as I like the place for an infrequent stop.

It was a treat to see this area in all its overgrown summer green glory. So alive...so beautiful! :)
