The river is finally slinking back from its high level but still has quite a way to fall. These pictures don't yet show just how high it really was but give you an idea. It was high enough to reveal that whole trees were washed up and under water on the cobblestones. The river has left us with a lot of driftwood; that riverboat ramp above was just about completely underwater. Unfortunatley, there's also a lot of trash that has been washed up and left behind. I'll try to remember to post some photos of the Mud Island River Park hillside which is a better visual gauge of where the water level was. We don't call it the Mighty Mississippi for nothing!
