Rivers have been up quite a bit in 2011. I paddle the Meramec river at least once per month. I watch the water levels as I pass over the river to work each day. I’ve often taken the kids to Emmenegger park to hang out and hike trails. On this particular day, Danelle was sick and needed to sleep. So i took the kids to the park to check out the flooding while Danelle slept. We spent a couple hours at the park and saw a noticeable rise in the level of the river before we left. Here are a few photos of near the highest level I have seen at this park.
