The other day the river was still up. We decided to go over to the lake and see how high it was..
It was high..the water was nearly to the top of those posts. Years ago you could walk over the river here..when there was a walkway. Perhaps it was a heavy spring thaw that took out the walkway..or perhaps the State just removed it because of liability issues.
This is the view across the road..the river is heading for the hills. I am sure that the river has flooded the road back there in the hills..we have not ventured back there yet…it is more than likely really muddy.
Here is where we pick up the river again at the corner just down the road from us. It is going across the road..this corner always has water in it in the spring..but to have this much water is really something else.
The river was too full and crossed the road here..
I think we should call this part of the river Little Shell Lake in the spring. We could hear the Ducks having a party back in there, they must have been celebrating their good fortune.
I am just trying to keep my head above water this week..it has been a really busy week:)
