New Wave activity and Water level in the Rio Grande river, near Taos, New Mexico 8/10/09
Pretty good day today – 23 on the AM Racecourse, 14 on the PM Racecourse, 8 on the Rio Grande Gorge and 10 on the Float. We’re expecting things to begin to quiet down soon, as kids go back to school.
Level today is 238 cfs. We could use some rain!
Here’s a photo of a very large bug, encountered along the riverside, which we believe is a crane fly, but it seems to be missing legs and antennae. Wikipedia says they’re fragile and lose body parts easily, and since the adult winged form dies immediately after mating, this guy may have been on his last legs. Or, it may be another bug altogether.
