Ramsey Canyon In Sierra Vista Az,
Ramsey Canyon is a canyon of contrasts. Its deep cleft lies between Mexico's Sierra Madre, the Sonoran and Chihuahuan deserts and the Rocky Mountains - and Ramsey Canyon has aspects of all of them. The shores of Ramsey Creek are grown up with maple, sycamore and columbine, drawn to the unusual wet cool created by the shielding canyon walls as well as the creek itself. Then, not even meters away, you'll find cacti and yucca growing as strong and healthy as they would in the pure desert.
