Recent flooding on the Big Muddy

Posted in Travel on June 26, 2010 by beadnfun

Last weekend we headed down to the river in Rocheport.  I love it there, My grandfather came from their and I think he built one of the houses there as well.  We knew that with the recent heavy rains that things were going to be really high down on the river.  So we took us a stroll and this is what we saw.

This is the bog…it is usually a little wet, but not like this.

This looked like a fairly massive tree, it helps that it looks bigger in its reflection.

This edge is usually a sand bar.  It was interesting to watch how the currents changed here, large trees floating downriver.

My attempt at some scenic shots.

Some crazy currents.  I could watch forever.

Some of the big logs going down the river.  Some of these were big, I just wish they had been closer to me.

It’s always beautiful at the river.  I just wish one of these days one of those old-time steamboats would turn the corner.

This is the other view of the trail.

Bluffs like this up and down the Missouri River.

I thought I got a better shot of this Trumpet Vine flower, but the light was starting to get a little low.  Guess I moved too much.

Thanks for checking in with me today.

I went to see my dad the other day.  I always like to take the camera along…though I always get him looking down.

Though that was the one were he was looking at me.

But here is more.

Here he is looking at the Facebook App on the phone.  Pictures of the family and stuff are always at hand that way.

I wonder if I annoy him taking all those photos of him?

Thanks for checking in again.
