This might be the last int he series unless something else grabs my eye other than the macros on the way. One thing about this oncoming titan: it was rising inches in minutes. I didn’t notice it and quite honestly, I didn’t think about how much danger we could have been all the way down to the water’s brink. A gentle addition of water from feeder creeks would raise levels slowly. But imagine if there had been a large thunderstorm upriver. It just might have caused a small flash flood that would have been bigger and higher than I could have climbed away from, especially if I didn’t happen to be looking at the time. I doubt there’d be any warning other than that feeling you get when pressure changes drastically. In less than a minute, water could be a couple feet higher – no threat whatsoever in the river’s huge channel to anyone but some unobservant photographer shooting the muddy water. LOL!
