fat river

The Fraser River is high with the spring melt. We walked through the Derby Reach campsite yesterday. Many campsites are occupied - not by campers but water.

The campers who were there didn't seem the least bit concerned, though. I suppose the rise in the river is altogether predictable so if there were danger of even higher water, there would be lots of time to get away.

We walked the Edgewater Bar Trail to Derby, the first Fort Langley. In one place the water was about to nibble at our toes.

For comparison of how much the river has risen, this photo of the cutaway bank near the Derby heritage cairn was taken in January this year...

and this is what it looked like yesterday.
