A series of videos shows the muddy violence that took over slickrock country when flash floods hit Natural Bridges National Monument this weekend.
Filmed on Saturday and posted to Youtube by user asloss7, the videos show rivers raging through the usually-peaceful Armstrong and Tuwa canyons.
It is a subtle reminder to plan adventures carefully around weather when venturing into southern Utah’s nooks and crannies. (If you need less-gentle convincing, watch canyoneer Eric Hanson’s harrowing, now-viral video of his climbing party caught in a flash flood in Behunin Canyon at Zion National Park.)
The Natural Bridges videos depict:
