Cienega Creek, Cottonwoods

 

Before I start rolling out images from Colorado, I wanted to share a pretty little place in the Empire mountains of southeastern Arizona – Cienega Creek.  Actually, this is a feeder to Cienega Creek.  I hope to make an image of Cienega Creek proper at some point, but this what called to me the day I was there.

Cienega Creek is an important corridor for birds and wildlife.  Over 170 species of birds have been identified in the Las Cienegas National Conservation Area (NCA).  I re-stumbled upon this area while looking to explore the San Pedro Riparian NCA. Everything is primitive here.  There are no paved roads and just a few dirt roads left from the days of when the Empire and Cienega Ranches were in full operation.  Now it’s protected by the BLM.
