Remarks & Notes 
Known more for it's lack of water than abundance, it would be a surprise to many to hear that the worst problem a railroad can face in the desert is too much water. Widespread heavy rains during the past week have turned dry washes into raging torrents, and the Mojave River was turned from a broad, sandy wash into a raging river. The UP managed to stay high and dry, but all the river crossings were obliterated resulting in me hiking 3 miles to get this shot.
