A river (would have) flowed through it

Posted on | December 23, 2010 | 1 Comment

The last of five days of rain was subsiding as Wynne Wilson took this photograph of the Loma Alta Debris Basin in Altadena, California at 3:45 p.m.on December 22nd. It is one of more than 150 such structures set in upstream canyon tributaries to the Los Angeles River, San Gabriel River, Santa Monica Bay, Dominguez Channel, and Santa Clara River watersheds.

    Wow, great shot. My wife and I lived just below the basin on Sunny Oaks Circle. I remember the last time this happened — 2005, I think — we were sure hoping that the whole thing would hold together!
