Two-faced Two

Bridge 2, photo by Carol Tornow
Continuing our walk into Sabino Canyon on the road (and our series on the canyon bridges), we come to bridge two. (This is where several naturalists do 'show-and-tell-and-pan-for-garnets' during the week on the little beach under the sycamore on the upstream side. If you haven't already enjoyed this activity, I urge you to check the schedule for the days and times. It's great fun and, of course, the naturalists are knowledgeable and happy to answer any and all questions about the canyon.)  Again, you'll want to go to the middle of the bridge and note how much the upstream side has silted in compared to the downstream side. Another example of the awesome power of water. Look right and up and you'll see the two-faced rock - here's a better view - and that's how you'll know you are on bridge 2. Think: Two = Two-faced.
