The Truckee River is high and it is moving! With all the weather we've been having lately the Truckee River is higher than it has been in a long while. I headed over to McCarran Ranch yesterday to check out the water level.
The river is high enough that it has taken out a lot of the hiking trail (Tahoe Pyramid Bikeway) near the parking area off of Waltham Way and Wild Horse Canyon Dr. I didn't have my irrigating boots with me and unfortunately a spot along the trail was too deep and too socked in with big sagebrush to get around easily. So my exploration of the river was cut quite a bit shorter than I would have liked.
Below are pictures from where I did get to venture.
