The White River

During Donna’s trip for her ultrasound, about halfway there the river turned white! On the way back we caught back up with the miles of white.

My first reaction was that this was industrial pollution. I remember when Fountain Creek in the Springs looked just like this. It turned out to be discharged fly ash from the power plant.

But we learned at the Cotopaxi Store, where we stopped for a snack, that this is from Chalk Creek above Salida and happens after every big rain.
