I’ve been flying over the Kitsault River a few times a day for three weeks. The last 24+ hours of rain increased the sediment load, changing the river from clear blue to muddy brown. The water level also increased, filling in braided channels. In a few more days of rain, it may reach its bankful-width (as full as the river can get before flooding). This is (approximately) the same segment of river over 4 days:
Note: Sunday’s photo is taken on the outgoing (morning) flight, while the rest are taken on the incoming (evening) flight, so the perspective is 180 reversed.
