View of Presa del Mulato, a low dam used by farmers on both sides of the Rio Grande to raise the water level just enough to send water through irrigation ditches. the cleared field in the foreground is the active floodplain of the river. In the background is the village of El Marqueño, Mexico on the high (gravel) terrace and to the right a mountain pediment slopes toward the river. Photo by Andy Cloud.
