Sabino Canyon debris flows on new Google Earth photos

Google Earth posted new photos of the Santa Catalina Mountains north of Tucson that show spectacular views of the debris flows that tore up much of the canyon in July-August 2006. Go to Google Earth and search on "Sabino Canyon."

The light colored streaks running from upper left to lower right are debris flow chutes. Stop 9 on the shuttle route is marked by a blue dot in the upper right. That location was buried by 8-10 feet of boulders and debris.
