Clark Fork

Clark Fork is a small river that flows into the much bigger Stanislaus River. It's about 40 minutes north east of our hideaway and we try to go every spring to see the difference in water level, which helps us judge how full our lakes will be during the summer months of lake activities.

Here are a couple of photos from the past 2 years to compare:

2007. Looks similar to this year's photo, but there's actually a little more water flowing in this one. But this was a very very dry summer. I posted about the drought last year here.

2006. This was a record breaking season thanks to tremendous snowfall that winter. It was glorious.

We were surprised to see how low the water level was because we had a lot of snow and rain this past winter. We're hoping that it's because it was still early in the season when we took that first photo and most of the snow in the high country hasn't melted yet.

Have a wonderful weekend.
Wishing all the mother's a fantastic, beautiful day.

I really do hope this past winter brought more water to all the drier states, Mad, especially to Georgia. I think so.

And for you who have a mother's heart, happy weekend! :)
