Clover Spring, outside of Clint’s Well. This spring is very “finicky” and has a quick flow response to large precipitation and/or snowmelt events. It was dry all summer, but then started flowing after all of the rain/snow in October. We expected it to be flowing this past visit, but it was dry.... :(. After looking at the information from our data logger, it looks like it stopped flowing around the first week or so of December- that was when Northern Arizona began experience consecutive below freezing days. As a result, no more water was entering the shallow aquifer system and the spring dried up. Poor lil guy...
.....pillow skiing anyone?
It’s been a year since I started collecting hydrogeology data from the North Rim for my field work. It’s been a wild ride so far, but that’s what it takes to get the rgd (real good data). Thanks to all of those that have helped me so far! 🙏🏼 it’s getting to be time for me to buckle down and process all of this data. Thanks @zevaxler for the photo!
