Santa Elena Canyon Storm
Storm conditions early January 2007 made this hike a lot more challenging...and very lonely. Notice how the rapidly rising Terilingua Creek has turned flesh colored. Aware of flash flooding, we carefully made our way across the creek. It was knee deep and fast. On the way back it was thigh deep and very fast we were glad to get out.
Thanks to Mark Doiron for correcting tilt of my image.

That's an awesome image and I'd love to see something like that firsthand but it would make me nervous as well.
