Well I don’t have much to say. Have you ever run out of words? I haven’t posted in quite a while because I haven’t had much worthy to add to the cloud. There is already so much noise pollution floating around on the web I haven’t had the heart to add to it. But I thought a pic or two might not be so bad.
The fish is, I believe a Greenback Cut, though it is hard to tell, and even the biologists have famously made the mistake of misidentification (see article here), so please don’t hold me to that.
The river is the Roaring River. This pic is in the alluvial fan area of the river where it spills into the Horseshoe Park, and then the Fall River. The Alluvial Fan was created by a flood resulting from the failure of a dam on Lawn Lake in 1982. The resulting flood rushed down the Roaring River Valley at a peak flow rate of 18,000 cfs. When the flood hit the wide valley of Horseshoe Park it slowed down and dropped the boulders (many larger than cars) and rocks that it had been carrying resulting in the alluvial fan.
