In case you aren't familiar with Southern Arizona, the Colorado River weaves its way to Mexico, flowing near Yuma. Nearby, it even becomes the state boundary between the Grand Canyon State and the Golden State. On both sides of the river, the desert is incredibly hot in the summer.
Near Yuma, the Colorado River feeds Lake Martinez and one of a few oases in the area. It was an interesting surprise to come upon it, as was the dichotomy of the arid desert the green palms and grasses of the oasis. Wonders of nature never cease to amaze.
