Winter just won’t go away.
Wednesday is the first day of spring, but actual spring feels months away.
It’s supposed to snow again.
We walked up the Des Plaines River Trail at Kilbourne again, to see how high the river was, and if we could see the beavers.
The trail was flooded in spots, leaving open about a half mile of trail to walk. Fortunately, it was open to the bridge where we’ve seen the beavers before.
Unfortunately, we didn’t see them. The water level is very high now, right about flood stage.
A lot of the wooded area was now a huge lake, with the trail a high spot down the middle. We’d never seen the river so high, but then again, we hadn’t been out there before last spring.
I think tomorrow’s post will show how high the river’s gotten in the last month, since I have some similar shots. I know you can’t wait!
