Here are some photos from today:

    It’s amazing how quickly the river rises. Prior to 41 closing, the bench shelter and walking path were as far as they normally appeared from the shore. One week later, and probably less, they’re underwater. Crazy.

    I need to take a photo when it’s not flooded for reference! Will try to remember this summer. :)
