High Water

This photo give some idea of how far the high tide pushes up the river. Normally the riffles would continue down past the bridge that can just be seen through the trees, but the tide has pushed up far enough to raise the water level to a height where the riffles disappear.

Location: Totem Park, Sitka, Alaska
