Detritus

Turkey Creek dries up before its confluence with the Gila River. Stacks and piles of sticks, logs, whole trees are caught up on trees standing dozens of feet away from the gently flowing shallow creek. It seems impossible that this trickle ever held the capacity to rise so far above its bed and carry such big, heavy objects, wedging them so tightly only decomposition will remove them.
