We are finally out of winter weather, although we could still have a snow storm in May.
The little side stream has water in it - the result of snow melt.
That shoal of cobble was deposited by high water flows in the spring of 2015, filled up a nice fishing hole. The other damage to the riverbank is from the 2013 flood. We haven't figured out what to do to shore up the river banks against future high water events.
If you came to visit, this is the view from our lane toward the highway. Our house is out of sight of the gate. I took this picture to send to the trash company because their driver claimed he couldn't get to our bin due to a locked gate on a bridge. He had the wrong street - as you can see no bridge involved and the bin is not inside the gate (which we never close).
You may think the point of this picture is to show the river, but I was looking at the young ponderosa pine trees that came up on their own. They are about 6 or 7 years old - fairly fast-growing. This is the area below our gate in the picture above, belongs to the neighbor.
This is the new parking area for the fishing club members while I'm working on stabilizing the slope where we had the rock slide.
We can't have any cars in that area until we get a risk assessment from professional engineers.
