Quick stop off the 89A to check the flow at the confluence of Sterling Canyon and Pumphouse Wash. There's high water right now, as to be expected from seasonal precipitation. It covers Pumphouse Canyon from wall to wall. Several of the normally dry tributaries were flowing fairly well (see photo). Definitely worth a stop this time of year, if you're in the area.
