From lush spring to dry midsummer

The river is low, but this part is still dangerous for a little doggie.

That's Jones Island behind Ellie. This part is very shallow, and we can wade back and forth. The water doesn't even come into my hikers.

The only thing we don't especially like is the hard-scrabble area, where the newly high and dry rocks make for tough walking. Ellie instinctively heads towards the grassy parts.

That's summer and soon we can expect the river to drop even further.
