Locals have been coming here since the 1800s often on horseback for swimming and picnics. Here is an old picture of Arizona Falls in the time before electricity.

Good morning Jeff. Who thought about a waterfall in Phoenix? Not me. Now I know and it is still being put to good use. A lesson here for the environmentalists? Maybe. Enjoy your day.

An almost secret waterfall! I'd have to go see that if I were ever in Phoenix.
