Aravaipa Canyon scenic © Lang Elliott

During my travels in the spring and early summer of 2017, I made three visits to the remote and picturesque Aravaipa Canyon in southeastern Arizona, truly an “oasis” in the desert. I concentrated my activities at the eastern end of the canyon on the Arizona Nature Conservancy’s wonderful Aravaipa Canyon Reserve (see location on map below).

In spite of numerous jet overflights (going to and from Phoenix), I was able to collect many supremely immersive and relaxing soundscapes, most including the gurgling of the year-round Aravaipa Creek that passes through the canyon (the canyon is so narrow that it can be difficult to obtain a recording without water sounds). Featured below in a Soundcloud playlist are seven of my favorite “waterscapes” from the canyon. While they all share the tinkles and gurgles of the creek, they also differ in significant ways, at least to my ear.

Let me know what you think … and please use headphones for a realistic and immersive binaural listening experience. Note that the playlist automatically advances from one recording to the next, so you can sit back and listen to the waterscapes for hours on end if you so desire.

I hope you enjoyed the waterscapes. In the months to come, I plan to share a number of additional recordings made in Aravaipa Canyon and associated side canyons (which lack the stream noise). So please stay tuned!
