(Last one, I promise!)
Our last stop was the Rt. 173 bridge, with Van Patten Woods to the north and Wadsworth Savanna to the south.
We had walked this area March 31, and the river was high then, and I was curious how much higher it was now.
This was the view facing south off the bridge (see, a panoramic!):
Something we hadn’t seen anywhere else was damage by run-off. Some areas here got almost 7 inches of rain, and I think this area must have gotten a lot, because the shoulder had these huge gouges:
They were maybe eight inches deep, great scars in the shoulder.
OK, time for one last water shot. This one is from the bridge you can see in the first shots. I liked the reflections!
Well, that’s what we saw Saturday. Today the river was definitely lower, then it rained. I’m hoping to get out again this weekend and get some follow-up shots; it’s supposed to be sunny and near 60.
Finally, signs of spring!
