Since when does the Audubon section of Grand Junction's Riverfront Trail feature an awesome waterfall such as this? There's always been a "drain" at this location, but never a waterfall. Where did it come from?

Western Colorado saw its fair share of rainfall this last weekend. On Saturday morning, April 1, what is normally not more than a steady "drip" turned into a magnificent waterfall.

Located just west of the spillway at the Redlands canal, this waterfall is typically not much more than a small ditch emptying into the waterway. On Saturday morning, someone turned it up a notch.

Here's what the exact same location looks like on a typical day.

The show was not long lived. By Sunday evening, someone turned down the volume and the waterfall was back to its norm.

For the record, this was a nice touch. The amplified output of the waterfall truly complimented the walk.
