Croton Dam, Day Two

Absolutely spectacular roaring blast of water and spray as the MO dumps literally tons of pent-up rainfall and snowmelt. This morning, RiverQuest guide Don Graham and I stood streamside witnessing this historic event first-hand, awed by the power and volume of the onrushing flow. ...
