The beauty of flash floods

The Kambatik stream in flash floods

 Today the rains poured heavily for about an hour from 11 am.  All the downriver sections of the stream starting at Zone B encountered flash floods.  But as usual the flash floods would disappear the moment the rains stopped.  Flash floods is a normal matter for the park and is treated as a good thing.  It helps to do spring cleaning of the stream and its banks or plains by the stream.  The floods bring in loads of new soil and deposit them on both sides of the stream and surrounding plains.  Flash floods can be useful for games and recreation e.g. kayaking or canoeing.  Its a great time for photography, too.  Below are more pictures taken today to show the 'beauty of flash floods'.
