River Runs Wild

Back in mid-April I posted pictures of the quiet little creek that runs near our place in Penticton.

The ducks love it and even take naps there.

I had expected to find some young waddlers being shepherded by their parents on my next trip home, but …

… I instead found a very swollen, fast creek, loaded with mountain run-off. The ducks have waddled off to safer, calmer waters, as this creek is running near the top of its embankment.

Happy Thursday.

  1. That’s quite the change in the water levels at the creek. It’s a good sign that you’ve been getting a lot of rain, which I’m sure is needed given all the wildfires in Alberta.

    1. Penticton has been getting a lot of rain, spread out as showers almost every day. And then there’s the runoff from snow melt in the mountains. For once we’re not the dry ones with forest fires everywhere, but I don’t wish that on anyone. Alberta has been completely walloped (and further north into the NWT as well). I wish them lots of rain.

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
