The river in spate

The noise of the pounding water is the signal that a waterfall lays ahead. When the river is in spate like this, anything that falls in the water is swept away quickly and battered against the rocks.

5 to remember
el ruido – noise
la piedra – rock
rápido/a – quickly
el torrente – spate
estar crecido – to be in full spate [river]
