Wow, what an active monsoon that has transformed the landscape.
The road into the park was closed and for good reason. There are two washes that cross the road so the flow of water brings lots of sand. Note the sand banks on the left and the perspective of their size given by the two people. The sand needs cleared and water drained before open the road to vehicles.
So green but of course in time, that will become brown and dry and fodder for a fire.
Many of these flowering vines are present.
This has been installed recently, giving a good account of the Bighorn Fire of two summers ago.
With the washes flowing, lots of people bring their dogs and walk up or down stream. Then this occurred....
...a woman and her husband had been trapped in an RV on the other side of the flooded wash. A sister wanted to play golf so the woman walked about a mile with her golf clubs to reach the entrance. That brought a lot of stares.
While machinery was in operation to clear the road, a path had been created as a workaround. It crossed a muddy wash and the above woman fell into the mud. She was a good sport and had momentarily become lost so I showed her the way out.
