More Flood Damage

I hiked down to the Spring Creek aqueduct today in hopes of photographing some tracks after the flooding.  I was quite surprised to see the at the water levels were still quite high, and the debris from the cornfields has blocked up the underside of the aqueduct.  I normally walk underneath, but it is going to be awhile before I get to do that again.  It will take a few more milder rains to clean out the debris.

Regardless of my disappointment of not finding any tracks, I still got a couple of nice wildlife shots on the way back.

  1. Thx knapperbill. Any word on how much damage the canal sustained? Will any sections/trail possibly be closed for any significant time?

  2. Hey Matt, thanks for dropping by. I haven't heard of any real damage to the canal, but the Green River levees took a couple of hits near Atkinson. As far as I know, all trails are still open.
