NHD Photo of the Month

Each month the NHD web site will highlight a photo of a real-world hydrography feature that can be found in the NHD. Send your favorite photograph of a hydrography feature to the USGS and each month one will be selected for the web site. Take pictures of hydrography while hiking, boating, or on vacation. This is open to anyone wishing to participate. Entries should portray an existing NHD feature. Limit one photo per month per participant. Send digital photographs to the following email address:

This month's photo by Sue Buto, National WBD Lead, is of Horseshoe Bend (NHD reach code 14070006000716), located approximately 6.5 river miles downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam near Page Arizona on the Colorado River. You’ll find this excellent example of an incised meander in Region 14 of the new NHDPlus HR Beta data! Photo taken in 2014.
