On April 4 (see April Flooding), I posted 3 pictures taken from the River Lookout trail, and at the base of the cliffs. Shown here are photographs taken from approximately the same locations, after the river returned to its banks. The river is still high, but you can imagine the impact of the flood by comparing the photos.
Finally, here is a picture of Tom Kershner (on the right) and Rebecca Shields Moose standing on Route 611, beside a section of the wall. We took advantage of the road closure to cut some trees that I felt could compromise the integrity of the stone wall. The flood waters actually topped this section of wall, which is 7 feet above the road surface. Tom is the Preseve Manager at Gwynedd Wildlife Preserve, and is also Natural Lands Trust's arborist. Rebecca is one of four Stewardship Assistants. These folks visit the different preserves and help Preserve Managers "get the job done".
