Virgin River at Littlefield (09415000), June 4, 1942
James Baumgartner, #3601 This downstream view from a bluff above the Virgin River shows the gaging station at Littlefield, Arizona, in the extreme northwestern part of Arizona. The channel was relatively wide and free of vegetation, with cottonwoods along river right (right side of the photo) and mesquites and tamarisks along river left. Although the river is used extensively for irrigation and domestic water supply, no dams have been built across the main channels.
