Rainy Day Aftermath

I'm a little behind on the blogging, but finally got this picture uploaded. This picture was taken 30 June 2007 on a bike ride that Dada and I took on one of the rare sunny days we've had since mid May. We are on the hike-and-bike trail looking at the raging torrent that is Town Lake.

Town Lake (recently renamed Lady Bird Lake) is normally a placid lake with dams at both ends, but on this day it was a raging torrent due to the need to release as much water as possible from the lakes upstream (Town Lake is one in a series of flood control and water containment lakes along the Colorado River.

I don't think anyone had seen it moving quite this fast before, certainly not since the dam broke back around the turn of the last century.
