Yeah, Ian, it reminded me of a beaver dam on wheels! I was amazed at how the woodpile held back the water behind it. I've always heard of the trickle ahead of the flood but this had no forewarning like that.
Hojo - No kidding! With lots of campsites situated where drainages come down to the river, I always look at that nice level and smooth sand and think, "nope, that's just not where I want to wake up in the middle of the night if it flashes."
