There was another flash flood at Havasupai yesterday, similar to the one 2 weeks ago. I got to see it come first hand at around 8am. Rangers came around waking everyone up, telling us to get to high ground, and that we had 20-30 min before it would hit. It came exactly 20 min later as we were carrying our tent over a dry wash. I looked down at my feet and they were wet. Looked up the canyon and could see the bridge coming apart. The high water hit just as I crossed and looked back. Took about 6 hours for it to get back to "normal" level, but it carved out yet another creek bed on the west side of the campground.
I saw before the flood what the flood 2 weeks ago did. Needless to say, there are no more pools there at all. Yesterdays flood did even more damage, and I heard another was supposed to hit today. If your gonna go down this year, rule out the swimming and take pictures. Its gonna be a few years before its back to normal. Ill post the pics now in my triplog, and Ive got some really cool video of the picnic table floating away!
All in all, it was fun!
