I was in the Tonto National Forest in June 2021 just outside of Phoenix, Arizona. Here is a link to the Map of trails in Tonto National Forest https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/tonto/maps-pubs/?cid=fsbdev3_018758. It had rained two weeks before my arrival and so the desert was in bloom.
Queen Creek is a great area to lodge and shop outside Phoenix Arizona! Here is the link for the city https://www.visitarizona.com/places/cities/queen-creek/ and here is a link for Queen Creek Olive Mill https://www.queencreekolivemill.com/pages/queen-creek-az.

She Who Knows
BY Peggy Jo Farr
and swim with the river otters.
Running through the prairie grass chasing the clouds,
she loves to be at play.
She who knows countenance changes like the tides.
"Who is coming?" and "What is coming?" she whispers to her elders.
She who knows saw the white man coming.
The long white winter and the dead buffalo.
The snake on tracks, scaring the land.
The flying lead and men falling dead.
She who knows knew, and is no longer.
Her spirit dances upon the wind.
It runs through the long prairie grass.
She who knows is home with the white buffalo and The Great Spirit.
