Image of Gila River Below Blue Creek (09432000), July 23, 1931.
James Baumgartner, #1501 The Gila River upstream from its juncture with Blue Creek near the Arizona-New Mexico border drains 3,203 mi2 of rangeland and the Gila Wilderness. Just downstream from Blue Creek, the channel is somewhat confined within a bedrock canyon, but just upstream, as this view shows, the valley is relatively wide.
