"Love Over Gold"

"And you go dancing through doorways,
Just to see what you will find.
Leaving nothing to interfere,
With the crazy balance of your mind.
And when you finally reappear,
At the place where you came in ..
You've thrown your love to all the strangers,
And caution to the wind ..."
The Verde River Greenway State Natural Area sparkles and sings — sparkles with one of Arizona’s last free-flowing rivers - and sings with its large population of nesting and migrating birds.
More than 100 species of nesting and migrating song birds, raptors and waterfowl have been sighted along the Greenway, with additional sightings in adjoining Dead Horse Ranch State Park. In addition to being a bird-watching mecca, the Verde River Greenway is a wonderland that changes with the seasons to the delight of naturalists.
Currently, the Greenway is a 480-acre, six-mile long riparian area, which encompasses the Fremont Cottonwood/Gooding Willow Riparian Gallery forest, one of five remaining stands in Arizona and one of 20 such stands in the world.
