Close up photograph of floodwater flowing over the bridge

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.

Photograph of debris in a tree

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!
