It’s been a long weekend of working on proposals and grading papers, but I broke away for a while this morning to enjoy the cool fall weather and some stunning colors.
The river is a few feet higher than normal along here, as a temporary dam has been put in to facilitate construction of a new bridge just downstream. If you look closely you can see a crane peeking through the trees. The high water levels have submerged the floodplain and some big trees. I hope they survive the drenching. The high albedo GeoDog, also in the picture, appreciated being able to leap from the path and straight into the river though.
