See What a Little Rain Can Do?

After two years of back-breaking drought it’s down right refreshing (no pun intended) to see what a little rain can do for the Texas Hill Country. Late last year I photographed Pedernales Falls running about 15 cfs (cubic feet per second) which was about as exciting as watching the grass grow (or the Astros play). Now after a long winter of rain and (yes) even snow, the Pedernales River is flowing around 275 cfs and running almost 10 feet deep. What a difference a little ran can make!

  1. It really is nice to see that much water running there. Here we are in the drought cycle again this year and expect very low stream flows for the summer.

      If you can get away, come joins us for the TLS in late April. With all the snow and rain we’ve had the waterfalls should be spectacular.
