This park bench was completely under water earlier this summer when the water levels of the North Saskatchewan rose to a near-flooding state. As the water receded, debris from flooding stayed high up in the trees along the shore and the park bench was buried in silt and mud. The river has shown dramatic differences in water levels this year, now in the fall after a long spell without rain, the river is slow and clear with a beautiful blueish-green tinge. I’ve lived near the river for many years and I don’t ever remember seeing it such a pretty color.
