High Waters Are Coming

Posted by Michael 

Here are some looks at the  Smith River after three days of rain. It's rising. The wind was amazing. We have some video clips, but no time to edit them tonight. 

The white water down the middle and in the foreground is hiding a lot of rocks that usually defines the Big Dipper from the rest of the river.  At flood stage, the rollers are a good ten feet in height and roar with attitude...

The bar across the beach is starting to be covered. The water in the trees (foreground of photo) is the area we usually sit in. LOL

You can barely see the top of Big Rock down's usually quite big and great for climbing all over. 

Our beach is disappearing - water is usually the trees

There is a little creek here  the kids spend hours fussing's overgrown it's borders.

Sheep Pen Gulch is full

 Looking downstream from Slant Bridge you can see Myrtle Creek pouring into the main channel almost center of the photo.

This is looking upstream from Slant Bridge.

It looks beautiful, but that's not going to be much of a leap from Big Rock for a while :)

Yeah - the leap of terror is really just a small step these days. LOL
