Short Description of Activity
Water Sentinels Jenny, Tom, Rabbi Adele, and a new man David, braved the cold to measure waterflow and sediment levels on the Upper Verde River Today. As always, photos are posted on Facebook.
There has been a lot of rain and snow recently, and there was evidence of high water at Perkinsville and even higher water at Bear Siding – all the way to the cliff. Jenny’s waders had a leak in the lower leg and didn’t realize it until she took them off. Tom and David continued on to Verde Springs in the dark. It was a Friday night and the Rabbi wanted to get home to celebrate the Sabbath.
