The flood of Jan '97 changed the Kaweah alot.The descriptions between the Park
Boundary and the Lake have been updated to reflect the changes as I found them in
May and June of '97 at flows between 700 and 2300 cfs.
Check here for Olie Brown's report of Changes to the Kaweah
following the flood of '97.
