Gila County – Test Crossing Tonto Creek

Test crossing earlier in February when snow run off flows peaks. The county is the first to attempt to go across the creek to see if it is safe for other types of vehicles.  Ranchers for many years have tossed softball size stones into the water knowing that if you could hear the stone hit bottom, it was only about 2 feet deep. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
