The Rains Came Down & The Floods Came Up...

I've always loved to check out rivers and streams after major rainstorms and today was no exception. After enrolling half of my kids in high school this morning we took a pause on the bridge that takes us back to Los Laureles to take in the view. Water is awesome!

the normally tranquil, blue-green waters of the rio cangrejal

that rapid area is a massive rock where we like to sun-bathe and dive from

this area is usually all rock and beach

that area in the distance is never covered by water, i've only ever seen the water this high one other time.

the poor people of the river community taking stock of the rising waters

our troop of high schoolers taking in the sight

my ever-present companion manuel

the one girl in today's outing, the furious nodi

thankfully no one jumped

Matt,
Those pics of the Cangrejal at flood stage bring back memories. Glad everyone is safe. And I see people are living close to the river again :(
