We’ve had a lot of precipitation in the area recently, so the Des Plaines River is at flood stage right now.

This is blocking portions of the Trail, and closing underpasses.

We were at the closest access today, at Gowe Beach by Warren Township High School, and couldn’t go either way very far.

 

 

 

 

 

Makes me wonder where the beavers are – the river is a couple of feet higher than even the last time I was out looking for them.

Beaver sign, but before the flood? Who knows?
