But Doc had a great comment:
More Rain On A Flatter World Turns The Mainstream Into A Braided River
Killer connect, blogtools and Tom Friedman's Flat World
Braid river description and images
Which caused flashback:
Kicking Horse River : late 60's was hiking in the Canadian Rockies and pitched my tent high up a valley just below the Kicking Horse Pass.
Well above the treeline, pretty exposed, Baniff National Park, the Alberta side of the Continental divide.
Of course, a big old storm came up in the night, flattened my tent, in general taught me a lesson.
I suppose that to bring the analogy full circle, if you are going to camp out in the wilderness, keep an eye on the weather... or some such.
