Yeah, that lower stretch of the Dirty Devil will be interesting to watch. Looks a lot like the lesser side drainages to Powell. The reservoir and modern weather are creating what looks similar to rapid arroyo cutting. More of those rains like we saw in September and its likely to drag those steep sided chutes farther up river. That is until the next time Powell rises and inundates the Dirty Devil again, if ever.
