The Russian River’s mouth has been closed since September 11, more than 2 weeks now. Water is still being released from reservoirs upstream and something like 120 cubic feet of water has been flowing under Hacienda dam since then.
So the river, now lagoon has been rising. The water measures above 7′ at the Jenner visitor’s center.
For the past week I’ve been out there enjoying what amounts to a 9 mile long lake. In the next few days, I’ll share the best of the photos.
Here’s a view of the mouth taken several days ago from the overlook.
