There has been a significant amount of rainfall over the past month in the Hassayampa Valley and the mountains up near the headwaters. For the past several days, we have seen a good deal of above-the-ground water flowing in the Hassayampa River.
This shot (courtesy of The Better Half) shows the water flowing just north of the bridge crossing the river along US 60 in Wickenburg. We have seen the water flow above ground during the past week as far south as the US 60 highway parallels the riverbed, roughly down to the railroad bridge across the river ten miles south of town. It’s still raining in the area, so we expect that the river will continue flowing above ground for a while. Clickable image.
