Lower San Juan Photos

Hi,
I am currently working on a Lower San Juan Sediment accumulation study for my senior thesis at Fort Lewis. I am using a series of repeat photography to get an idea of how much sediment has accumulated upstream since the drop of Lake Powell. I am in search for pre dam to late 1990's photographs of the river from Government rapid to Clay Hills. If you have and photographs or have ideas to access some it would be greatly appreciated.

Prepare thyself.

Drag yourself to the haunts of long-time river rats, get and follow leads, buy some drinks, be conversant on how WreckedtheNation killed the San Juan, and you'll get photos.

Hint: if you are one of those that never leave the safety of Berndt Hall or your desk calculator to conduct research, you'll find initial leads in the hallowed halls of Harvard on the Hill that will take you down the back hill and into the history of local rivers.

Maybe even down the river, if you're worthy.

Call Valle's in Mexican Hat and ask for Richard. He ran in the predambrian era for Kenny Ross, and with many historic boatmen. He has an incredible amount of knowledge and may have photos that would help you out. You may also call Kristen at Wild Rivers in Bluff. Good luck, I'm interested to read your thesis.

Thanks for some info I have already made a trip to Bluff and collected photos from WRX on my first research trip. I already have a good collection, just thought I would check here for more ideas.

I bet the sedimentation group for Reclamation at the TSC (Lakewood, CO) may have some leads for you. Sedimentation Home:: Bureau of Reclamation : U.S. Department of the Interior

I wouldn't mind poking around our office here in Durango, but I am not sure we would have much stuff related to Lake Powell, although we involved with many San Juan River issues.
