INFORMATION ABOUT THE WICKENBURG AREA

THE HASSAYAMPA RIVER

 

Everything is right about Wickenburg but the Hassayampa RiverBox Canyon which has, by old legend, been called "the river that flows upside down." The water is hidden. The river's flow is almost entirely concealed in the sand and gravel of its bed that lies up to a hundred feet deep upon solid bedrock, with only a small stream visible here and there on the surface.

 

 

The Hassayampa Legend
-Andrew Downing

There's a legend centuries old
By the early Spaniards told
Of a sparkling stream that "lies"
Under the Arizona skies
Hassayampa is its name
And the title of its fame
Is a wondrous quality
Known today from sea to sea
Those who drink it's waters bright
Red man, white man, boor or Knight
Girls, or women, boys or men
Never tell the truth again!
