When the water came, it flooded into the canyon again

In late February, when a powerful earthquake rocked the mountain lodge, the waters started coming in.

The water poured from the cracks, then poured into the valley below, flooding out the river.

A section of the rock walls was covered in a thick layer of mud, and the canyon was flooded.

For a time, the lodge’s only source of water came from a nearby river.

Now, a portion of the canyon’s topographic features are still underwater, a reminder of how deep the river went.
