Calm Water

December 31, 2005 Reno woke up to the Truckee River flooding. This picture was taken downtown at the flooded Barbara Bennet Park near the river.

Barbara Bennet Park

Raging River

Here is a view of the Truckee River downtown. The rapids were huge, sometimes higher than the bikepath next to the path but the force of the river kept them from spilling over. Earlier in the day the waters were higher than this.

Rolling Rapids

This whole area is a park between two branches of the river.
