High Water in Grand Canyon

In November 2012 the Department of the Interior released a flood of 42,000 cubic feet per second. In compliance with the Grand Canyon Protection Act of 1992 the goal of the flood is to find out how effective multiple HFE (High Flow Experiemental) releases are to rebuilding and conserving sandbars and beaches downstream of the Paria River.

With a strong background in science and a healthy sense of adventure and curiousity, Ceiba Adventures struck out do our own assessment of the flood downstream from Diamond Creek to Pearce Ferry. During these trips we photo documented specific miles that we felt were significant to that stretch of water. We wanted to show the changes, if any through out the water flow fluctuations. There are definitely some dramatic shots. We felt some of the biggest effects took place at Diamond Creek and Pearce Ferry take out. See what you think here at our Flickr account:
