Before and After the 2016 GC high flow event

I was lucky enough to be on the Grand during the high flow event in November of 2106. Here is a great resource for seeing changes to the canyon's beaches. Also great for first timers to see what the sites look like now.

Cool to see how the HFE rearranged the furniture down there with the before and after photos!

It would be interesting to see how quickly things change back to the pre-high flow conditions. The high flows are great and I think provide backwater habitat at a critical time for the native fish but the beach buildup doesn't last much more than a season.
