Boise Greenbelt Flooded

I received a note from the parks department about flooding on a section of the Boise River Greenbelt, which runs right along the river from Garden City to Lucky Peak Reservoir. So I popped over to take a look last night. This section of the greenbelt was "closed" and the sign looked ominous. However, I saw two bicyclists breeze right through it after I took this photo. The "flood"' here does not have a current and is not very deep, even though the sign says it is, but I guess it could get dangerous if the water rises much more, plus, the water's cold - about 40 degrees. Other low-lying areas of the Greenbelt are said to be "puddle-y."


  1. On the evidence of this, the preparation of the ark looks like a slight overreaction! :)

  2. Hi Kris - I thought it was a funny sign, too. And all the "news" about the river running wild has really been a lure for the experienced kayakers and rafters, who were in the water yesterday and will be back today for challenging runs.


Thanks for stopping by!
