There’s Something Incredible About These 10 Rivers In Arizona

Arizona isn’t particularly well-known for the amount of water flowing through it. Large spans of the state are arid, desert land and plenty of experts agree that—due to some not-so-smart policies regarding how our precious sources of groundwater are used and contamination of those sources—we are on the brink of a looming water crisis.

Water is an incredible life source and commodity in the desert; it allows us and the wildlife we share this land with to live and thrive in an otherwise hostile environment. That’s why we should both recognize and respect our sources of water. Here’s a look at some of the beautiful Arizona rivers flowing through our state. Admire them for their beauty and remember that you’re not the only one who needs that water.
