Gorge in Bear Creek Near Telluride

 

Here’s a shot of a lower “gorge” like area in Bear Creek. Not exactly sure how it all came to be in geological terms; however, it appears to be a very narrow crevasse type rock formation which has highly constricted water flow and pressure which ultimately pools at the bottom of this drop of about fifteen feet. The pool area appears to go a bit deeper than the runout beyond. I’m guessing the pressure of the water flow somehow dug into the sediment.
