A Very Rainy Spring

In 2011 the streams and rivers were already full of water when the spring rains started. The previous year's record snow pack was melting off quickly. Some of our bridges, like this one, on Glade Creek, had to be rescued from an accumulating log jam that was threatening to destroy it. Tyler Bitner and his crew of misfits eventually raised up this flooded causeway on the west side of Jenny Lake. Now I think we could see a water year just as big as 2011 without completely flooding the trail like it is in the picture.
