Shakerag Hollow streams in flood

After many inches of rain, the streams in Shakerag Hollow were roiling and roaring as I walked through the hollow just after dawn this morning. Many of these streams are completely dry for most of the year. All the diffuse, gentle energy of rain has been channeled into vigorous, pounding flow.

      Yes! Ours are not quite as dramatic as the floods that roar down southwestern arroyos, but the idea is the same. Here, many of the streams run underground most of the year and only top the surface when in flood.
