A Personal View of Living in Durango and the Four Corners

It rolls on at night too
Growing up in Santa Fe, there was never this volume of water flowing in our "river." My friends and I knew it as the Santa Fe Trickle. Durango is an entirely different place. The Animas River is pretty big by my standards, and it has water flowing all year round. The current flow level for the river through Durango is at 1,420 Cubic feet per second. Our mountains did not receive very much snow this year, and I don't expect the river to run much higher as summer progresses.
