Commentary by SEC: 
This photo illustrates hydrological patterns common in the Sonoma Valley Watershed before large-scale modification by humans. Note the many sinuous braided channels and the darker-colored swales especially prominent in the lower right-hand corner of the photo. Rather than a single channel, Carriger Creek spread out into a complex system of distributaries. Early maps show the main channel of Carriger without a direct connection to Sonoma Creek
