If no one photographs it did the flood ever happen?
Taken from the Smith Avenue High Bridge just after the sun rose.
The Mississippi River at Chestnut Landing now has a beach. The river used to go up to the rocks but it went down after the last flood and enough silt was left behind to create a beach. The object on the beech is part of a rubber mask. People throw the strangest things in the river. Please don’t throw stuff in the river!
Many St. Paul City parks include water features. Even the parks on the river or on the lakes. The water in the park along the Mississippi River has been turned off for most of the season. Probably because of flooding. It is nice to see it on again.
Always fun to take this picture and I take it at least once a year. It was a hot day on the North Shore and at the height of tourist season.
