Yesterday I was hiking down the Sunset Trail, eventually dropping down into the upper part of Sabino Canyon on Mt. Lemmon. I went down there not expecting to see any water. However, to my surprise, there was water. Not much, but a trickle. Hiking down the canyon I would eventually find these little pools of water. Not big; about the size of a hot tube. In some of these pools were fish! I couldn’t belive it! The biggest one was about an 18″ long brown trout. I didn’t have any fishing stuff with me, so I just sat on a rock above the pools and watched him swim around for a while. I’ve been through that canyon many times, but never have I seen a fish that big. Nature truely is amazing.
And while I’m on the topic of fish, I must share an awesome documentary that I watched over the weekend. It’s called “The End of The Line”, and discusses the problems with deep sea fishing in our oceans. It is a serious movie, so expect to laugh, but one I feel everyone who eats fish should watch.
