I think I might be one of the few people who loves it when it rains on the weekend. Usually because it means better waterfall weather, but this weekend meant it was only in the 80's instead of being about 100 degrees out like usual.
Both Saturday and Sunday were filled with a nice steady and light rain. We got a few inches of rain here. I didn't think it would be enough to get waterfalls up and running, so I didn't attempt any adventures anywhere. But on Sunday night I was driving home and noticed that a fog or a bunch of low clouds were hanging over the river, so I grabbed the camera and headed back out to the Big Dam Bridge. The fog wasn't that thick over the bridge, but there was some fog drifting along the river at the base of the dam.
This was taken at my favorite spot to get pictures of the bridge. It's a concrete slab that shoots out in the river, which gives you some great views of the bridge. Of course the river has been so high lately that this little spot has been under water the last few times I'd been out there. It's a bit tricky to get there, however. You have to make your way down the riverbank, which is littered with large and pointy rocks. Since it had been raining all weekend, they were also slick. I only managed to slip and fall once. Luckily for me I didn't manage to fall on my camera in the process. And along with the rocks, there is a lot of tall grass, which my imagination led me to believe was filled with all sorts of poisonous snakes. Luckily they weren't out and about that night.
After I finished taking the picture above, I noticed a puddle along the concrete, and tried to get a shot of the bridge's reflection there.
Next I made my way back up the riverbank, managing to not fall again. I got a few more shots of the bridge before the camera battery ran out...
