Poudre River Rising 2011

Submitted by CatWhisperer on Thu, 06/09/2011 - 21:01

The following are a set of images that document the rising of the Poudre River in Fort Collins. The images are sorted into pages related to location on the river where I ride the trails. It is also a test of remote file hosting.

This is about the highest it got, with the water at the far end being over a foot deep or more. At the point were I'm standing, the water is about three inches.

Looking east under College Avenue. The water at the far end was almost up to the axle!

Looking North towards the Poudre River. The bicycle is a Diamondback Topanga, for scale.
Walmart river shoes are an awesome convenience, LOL!

Ducks not being bothered at all by the high water or current.
They make it look so simple, LOL!

Here's a view looking west under the gazebo, west of the bridge on College Avenue. The ripples show the speed and depth of the water here. The water was ice cold, BTW.
