You may have heard by now that the Pacific Northwest has been visited by an atmospheric river, also known as the Pineapple Express. Long narrow bands of water transported from the tropics in the atmosphere has meant lots of rain the last couple of weeks resulting in swollen rivers and flooding.
Earlier this week we had a short reprieve from the rain and went for a walk at Kanaskat-Palmer State Park where all was green though slightly barren as winter is approaching.
The Green River was flowing fast and furious
but these kayakers didn’t seem to mind.
This stretch of river is rated Class IV and dangerous anytime of year; only experts should try it.
We were content to watch.
