As John Fleck reported last week, runoff in New Mexico came fast and early this spring. Yesterday, I was at Box Canyon to check things out first hand. Sure enough, the water was cold and running strong â€” so strong that I ventured in only twice, and almost dunked my camera in during one crossing.
The “green up” is beginning, but still has a few weeks left to really get underway, unless we get another storm system like the one last week. Still, you can see evidence all along the river.
