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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This month's photo, by John Kosovich, shows the Arkansas River, and a side canal, as it flows eastward into Canon City, Colorado, just downstream of the Royal Gorge. The Royal Gorge Railroad locomotive is sitting on the tracks.
