Oxbow Lake



No votes yet

This is a great example of an Oxbow lake. This particular lake is located close to Cottonwood cutoff. It was formed when the Salt River deposited enough sediment to cut one of its meandering curves off. This process takes a large amount of time to happen and there is a potential for this lake to disappear provided low rainfall amounts.
