I knew that the flood concerns were at their highest level yet in Northern California this winter, with two dozen major river segments now at “monitor” stage, but I had to see it to really believe it. Wow. I was not prepared to walk my bike, waist-high, over and under and through the woods and am paying for it today with no dry socks. The Del Paso Boulevard floodgate was a real sight, too.
Here’s a slideshow of some photos I took this morning on my way in. Starting around mile 3 of the American River Parkway.
