Pajarito Canyon in flood (video)

Video by Craig Martin.

The mountains southwest of town received a great deal of rain around 5pm on July 11. Craig was scheduled to do trail work with some Girl Scouts, but they arrived only to be chased away immediately by a deluge. Craig stuck around for two hours and watched the show.

Los Alamos Canyon was also way up. I crossed the Omega Bridge on my way home from work about 6:00, and the water was running on both sides of the road. There were about 6 or 8 police cars down in the canyon. One westbound station wagon was turned around by the cops, and one eastbound truck with a trailer drove through the water (the road was flooded for maybe 100 yards in front of the ice rink) and up the hill. The roar of the water was quite loud even way up on the bridge.
