Natural disaster caught on game camera.

After five inches of rain in two days Cougar Creek was more than gushing down the hillside.  There are several culverts along the route but all of them started to overflow as they became clogged with all the debris washing down the creek.

The water has overflowed the culvert and is cutting a new channel for the creek down the road.  The water is moving fast enough now that it is activating the game camera.

Travis realized that there might be a problem up Cougar Creek and goes to check it out. Here he is caught on the game camera trying to unclog one of the culverts.

He decides he needs a longer tool.

 Mama and baby cross the new creek.

 Travis and Adam return at 5:00 in the afternoon to check for more problems.

 The following day Travis and Alan return to try to clean up debris.

 Mama and baby are back the night of the 10th and on the 11th.
