High Water

The Spokane River in Riverside State Park about 10 miles (16K) from my home. The runoff has raised most of the river to near overflowing. They are moving extremely fast making rafting, canoeing etc., very dangerous. Notice the debris lodged in the brush in the center of the picture. This shows that the water has been about 2 feet higher (60.9c). The home on the other side of the river must have felt threatened with water so near the home. Tomorrow a picture of this amount of water coming over the nearby Nine Mile Dam.
