Arizona has it own distinct method of naming rivers and creeks. When they are dry, they are rivers and creeks. When they have water, they are a flood. There are very few rivers or creeks that have water all year round. This is the dry bed of the Queen Creek. The Queen Creek runs out of the mountains north of Superior, Arizona and then out into the desert, running through the town of Queen Creek, until it joins the Gila River near Florence.
