[day 11 ... january 11]

We drove Tynor down to Laura's for a day of movies and hanging out, and on the way back, stopped by the Sammamish Slough to marvel at how high and fast-flowing the water is. We kayaked in the slough several times over the summer, and the current was so slow, you could hardly tell it was moving at all. Not so now. It's swirling and pouring along at a rapid clip. Trees and bushes along the banks are under water, and the river is quite close to the pavement of the trail at several points that we could see. And this is after it has receded somewhat, from the highs earlier in the week. Impressive. And a little scary, to see all that water where there is usually a sleepy little slough.
