Paddle day: high waters

With these high water levels, the river is everywhere. I had to grab this rare opportunity to paddle the flooded fields. There are quite a few roads now that can double as a convenient boat ramp`.
Usually this is a shallow creek.
The main river is very wide now and the currents are very strong.
This is a true bridge to nowhere.
I wonder how long this tree will stay upright. His two companion have already been carried away by previous floods.
Shallower waters
Some tangling of weeds
This marker usually marks the end of the low water revetment.
These trees line the flooded  river bank. Feet in the water now.
Paddling back towards the dry shore.
