Low Water Winter

This winter started off with a bang, but has now wound down to minimal rain extending this biblical drought we've been suffering through in Alabama for the past few years.

However, I have been fortunate enough to get on low water Little River Canyon a lot. The canyon takes on a different character at these low levels and is way more technical and dangerous in most places, than at normal flows. Here's some pics of low water lines from the suicide section of the canyon...
