Project 365 – Day 174

The Red Deer River

CPR pedestrian bridge

By now, many of you have heard of the devastating floods in southern Alberta.  Here in Red Deer, we were very lucky; although, we were on flood watch because of the Red Deer River.  This is what it looked like at 6:00 pm today.  That’s a pedestrian bridge that is currently closed to the public.  The water is moving pretty fast, but city engineers say that it’s receding now.

Flooding

None of these trees are supposed to be underwater. The whole left side is a walking path.

Gaetz southbound

That’s the bridge I was on when I took the two photos above. Look how high the water level is.

Looking East

Looking east from the northbound bridge. Lots of drowning trees. The area on the left is a dog walking trail from what other people were saying.

Flooded Trails

More flooded trails. The itty, bitty black dot in the middle of the water, further back, is a trail marker signpost.

Keeping watch

If you look closely, you’ll see the trail behind this city worker is flooded out. There are city workers everywhere to make sure no one does something dumb like try hiking the river trails.
