New vs old Channel
I have a question for the more knowledgable G.C. people out there. If I remember correctly from discussions last year, the Pearce Ferry Rapid was formed because the water level in Lake Mead receded and the river adopted a new channel. This caused the river to cut into earth and rock that had different levels of resistance to the river and caused the big drops and holes that we saw in pictures and video last year. What I'd like to know is, where was the original channel in relation to the current channel?
