Author's side note:
As I researched these creeks, I found many ideas, articles and opinions.
The format and organization that is represented on this webpage is one that
did not seem to be represented by the other ideas out there. It is
certainly possible that someone else has employed this before. If so, I
apologize for the lack of attribution, but note that I did arrive
independently at all of my conclusions and opinions for the write-ups for
these creeks. As we try to capture details of the rapids and creeks,
remember that they have been there for generations before we “discovered”
them for ourselves.
