The rafting season is getting closer. Out on the river on a day like today would be great! And what a fantastic day it is. This is the warmest day yet this year.
Today I drove up the river to Coal Camp where the last set of rapids leaves the foothills. If there is snow and ice here there is plenty more ice upstream and at the higher elevations where we are rafting. With this much ice the river is a few weeks away from flowing enough to float a raft. A month until there are rapids.
The picture of the final rapid is no rapid at all! The build up of ice downstream of the rapid is causing the water to pile up and form a pool that obliterates the rapid.
And being Earth Day here is a picture taken of Cartier Creek, which was just begging to be taken reminding us how beautiful our planet is and that it is worth preserving. Let’s work at that year round.
