|Two foot+ drop in the arroyo floor at the St Francis Dr. crossing|
Massive scouring and drops in some areas; other areas collecting the tons of displaced sand resulting in rises of several feet. Debris in trees at levels above shoulder-height. Amazing stuff.
On the return trip I stumbled on two young graffiti artists in the culvert of the Old Pecos Trail crossing. They called me sir. I critiqued their work and ran on. Good kids.
|Storm debris at the bridge along Gail Ryba suggests the flood level was above the bridge deck|
|Heavy debris (entire chamisa bushes) wrapped on railroad pylons up to 6ft in height|
|Helpful sign along Gail Ryba: Don't enter the arroyo when flooding|
|An up-arroyo property armored with willow and cottonwood plantings. Erosion minimal.|
