Out & About: Tavasci Marsh
Tavasci Marsh provides living chronicle to Verde River 'circles of life'

COTTONWOOD, Ariz. - This hiker has always considered Griffith Springs the best two-mile hike in Arizona, but Tavasci Marsh ranks right up there with it. Tavasci Marsh is a natural story about the circles of life. Thousands of years ago, Tavasci Marsh was part of the Verde River flow. Over time the river changed, but Tavasci Marsh remained. Now, the marsh is fed by Shea Springs, just north of the marsh, which keeps the water at 68 degrees year-round.
