San Carlos River near Peridot, Southern Arizona - 2000

Detailed Description

The gaging station has been removed, but the approximate position of the original camera can be established from the background mountains. The channel has shifted back to the left, eliminating the cottonwood trees present in 1964, but black willow is obvious in the foreground, cottonwood seedlings and mature trees appear throughout the view, and non-native tamarisk is adjacent to the river channel.
