A Tributary Enters the Stream

A tributary to the Turure River enters the main stream. The tributary (in the center of the photo) runs below the road cut. The main part of the stream (along the bottom of the photo) comes from an undeveloped area. One can observe the difference in sediment levels. The main part of the stream flows from the left of the photo to the right.
