is PIR under water as well?
I doubt it but I'm going by news coverage and heard of no problems there. I'd check their website if you'd planned on anything. Mt. Hood is adding a 600 inch snow depth to the snow melt so the river will stay high for a bit.

The destruction of Vanport was timely in the sense they knew it was on a floodplain and Vanport existed to build ships for the war.

Great pics Clay!

It's really amazing to personally see how big that river is on a normal day. I bet it was crazy seeing it like you did!?!?

Crazy! Pretty much the whole western side of Colorado is under flood advisory. It's due to the melting of the record snowfall the mountains received. Heads up downstream!

I've been there every year and never seen it like that so late - hadn't planned on going this year until August. Usually the campgrounds are so dry the dust is horrific but that mud would be a lot worse.

Probably is still overflowing - maybe its time for a day trip to check it out.
