Paria River at Lees Ferry (09382000), ca. 1964-1968.
(photographer unknown) In this upstream view, the photographer documented channel conditions in the reach just upstream from the gaging station. A small cottonwood tree appears at right center, just right of a relatively straight channel reach that undoubtedly was used for indirect-discharge estimates. The shrubs on both sides of the river are probably tamarisk, with other perennial shrubs on the broad floodplain at right.
