Rock Fall at Warm Springs Rapid

A friend just shared the attached with me - pretty remarkable, and, I think it's going to make running it next year very interesting if the rocks do not move much. Discuss

Very cool! I love how rivers change and evolve.
What is that old saying about never running the same river twice?
Your friends did a good job of documenting the event.

One of my favorite parts of rivers is running canyons and wondering in awe what the land must have looked like when the river had only carved down 10 feet into the 100+foot canyon we are in...

I love the impermanence of it all.

I believe the saying is... You never run the same river twice, for it is never the same river nor are you the same man...

I think it was aliens and that impact crater was where their ship landed. Blast from their ship knocked the rocks lose from the upper cliffs.

That's my theory.
