These photographs were taken along Sabino
Creek on July 17, 1999. More photographs taken after the flood are found
on the Creek Clean-Up Page.
This is the water flowing over
the first bridge on the tram road. The photo on the right
shows a pile of debris that includes tree branches, leaves,
and roots wrapped around a tree just downstream from the first
bridge. Some of the debris
was moved by volunteers.
This is a close up photograph
of the debris found in a tree beside the first bridge on the
tram road up Sabino Canyon. You can see that the water must
have reached quite high in order to leave this debris so far
off the ground. Actually, it was about 7 feet from base of
the tree to the debris!
