Boise River Surprise

I thought the river surge would be over while I was traveling, but instead, the river is reaching new heights today - to 5,300 cubic feet per second, which is a lot higher than the water managers predicted last week. And compare the difference in April here. The little ledge I usually stand on to take the photo has sunk into the water. Our high temperatures will reach into the 90s this weekend, which will tempt people who want to float or kayak the river. The warnings have been issued: the water is very cold, moving very fast, and there are a lot of snags and debris in the river.
