Home Creek running through Fern Canyon. Lucky to walk through it all with nobody else in the canyon. Usually the walls are covered with lush green ferns, but many ferns were brown (likely zapped by frost this winter). As it warms up, they will regrow, get all green and be ready for showtime when @Miya arrives later this year! :cool:

Nice narrow part, logs upstream of Rick

We hiked out of the canyon upstream (past the log jam) and hiked back on the James Irvine trail. Great hike, 11-12 miles yesterday. And the best thing: no freaking SNOW @Artemus

So if you have not heard of it, Nebraska has been experiencing some historic, nearly statewide flooding this week. My home fared well, though my hometown did flood pretty badly. I've been on nights all week and just today got to look around a bit. Didn't do too much looking as its poor taste to merely spectate in a disaster area, but passed through my hometown (Ponca) and checked out the releases at Gavins Point Dam near Yankton, South Dakota. Releases for this time of year are usually mid 30,000cfs but due to massive flooding upstream (a major portion from the Niobrara river, which flooded bad enough to destroy the Spencer Dam) releases yesterday were increased to 100,000cfs. Today flows were down to 73,000cfs, which is still impressive and flooding on the Missouri persists downstream at this flow.

As further reference, in the flood of 2011 the releases from this dam were at max 160,000cfs, which remains the highest release from the dam.
