Flying along the hills we saw the most water in years. Polished sandstone below 154 with a smooth groove that has had a trickle even in Summer, is flowing nicely. Seven Falls finally has actual falls now too. 

Back near the airport, Devereux Slough provides a large landing area for waterfowl and runoff colors the nearshore Channel.

Thank you for your photos! I haven't commented before, but I have appreciated them quietly many, many times. The second photo in this series looks like an abstract art work - well done. And it's great to see 7 falls with water. Thank you again.

Been to the falls? If anyone's been to that smooth rock area, it would be great if you could send Ed pix and/or let us know if it's accessible to the public. It's below a bend in 154, and there's a turnout on the southbound side. Maybe a trail from there, if it's not private property?

John - Can you do a fly over & get some close in images of the 154 closure areas? I heard there are two sections and one may necessitate the road being closed for months due to potential washout. Thanks in advance.

We're curious too, but low clouds along the ridge dissuaded us from going over for a quick look. If we do get a pic, even after it's open, I might send it to Ed if the aerial perspective might add to our sense of what happened.

Thanks, John. Beautiful to see so much water. I agree with TWOSCOOPS, please keep us in mind when there are wildflowers.

Flicka, I'm curious which pic(s) in this set are your favs. I like the Dev.Slough Edhat featured, but my fav is the smooth rock one and its companion pic of the rapids below it.

John, when you go see the wildflowers, please bring back photos!

Oh, you know we love to share our aerial pix - and wildflowers, like waterfalls, are on our local bucket list. :D

Yes! We've so missed all our local waterfalls during this prolonged drought. Even after heavy rain most were dry or just a trickle.
