Spring in the Outback - Seasons Views 4

It seems all I am accomplishing on my new "Through the Seasons" posts is apologizing for being late in posting! I did take pictures in May, but didn't get them posted, so here is the entire set.

Below is the view off of the Sarben bridge at about 4pm on Saturday afternoon June 11. As you can see, the poor sign I was using as an anchor for the photos is no longer there. The river is running high, but not as high as we've been told it would be by now, nor as high as we fear it may be later.

Not surprisingly, we aren't planning any tanking trips this summer, though a few friends have bravely kayaked the waters and report that it's real fun. Officials aren't recommending it! Below is the same view at about 2pm on May 22.
6:00pm on April 21.
The same location on March 12, 2011 at about 2:30 in the afternoon.
I'm not satisfied with the pictures from the Sutherland Reservoir, so I'm not going to take any more photos from there. Below is the view from Haugland Hill on June 11 at about 4:00pm.
May 22, approximately 2pm.
April 21 about 5:00pm.
Same view from back on March 12.



The seasons are slipping by in the Outback... too fast, as always!




Thanks for stopping by. The coffee is always on.
