paved with glowing stones
fish dart, hide in melted snow
illegal, he says

From http://en.widipedia.org/wiki/Acequia:

“An acequia… is a community-operated watercourse used in Spain and former Spanish colonies in the Americas for irrigation. Particularly in Spain, the Andes, northern Mexico, and the modern-day American Southwest, acequias are usually historically engineered canals that carry snow runoff or river water to distant fields.”
