Lots of flowing water in the drainage today! These were taken in the side drainage although the main had water as well.

Wow! I lived out there in the early 2000s and never seen water like that unless it had just stopped rainning. Guess the vegetation is gonna be thick in April when Im there. Thanks for the pics!

I was exploring that bowl south of Rough Mountain. There are drainage channels coming out of the bowl, merging together and leading into the side drainage pictured. These channels are 1-1/2 to 2 feet wide and maybe a foot deep. Reminded me of ones I'd new seen high up in New Mexico mountains. Flowing calmly and steadily, even saw a few water skeeters. Strange for such a blustery day.
