Gila River at Kelvin (09474000) October 2, 2000.
Dominic Oldershaw, Stake 430 The view is blocked by cottonwood trees, particularly at left and right with small trees in the foreground, and large tamarisk trees. This increase in riparian vegetation has occurred despite the fact that floods of 100,000 and 74,900 ft3/s, in 1983 and 1993 respectively, passed through this reach.
