Image Caption: Upper Rio Bermejo drainage,
northwestern Argentina. The streams draining vegetated mountains have
meandering patterns incised into bedrock; these streams probably carry
mostly gravel bedload and run clear much of the time. Streams draining
unvegated, higher mountains tend to have straighter courses with
braided valley bottoms; these probably carry a substantial suspended
load of silt, and sand, as well as the bedload of sand

and gravel.
