Dry Creek Bed!

This creek bed is Verde Creek at Camp Verde. (Yes, lots of green... for now anyway.) Normally you cannot walk across the creek bed as normally there is about 2 feet of water flowing across it. Right now though, as you can see -- the bed is dry. Or nearly so. We have had recent rains and I wonder what this looked like BEFORE recent rains. By the way, I am standing in the center of the creek bed -- which under conditions I have normally seen it in, would of course, not be possible. If you look at the creek bed wall you can easily see where the water line is normally at. We need quite a bit of rain to fill up this little creek bed again. I was so shocked to see this creek so dry. This just goes to show really how bad the drought has been for Texas Hill Country.
