Mouth is Closed

The mouth of the Russian River is closed again two days after the Sonoma County Water Agency breached it. Large waves washed sand into the channel dug by the Agency’s track hoe.

Water level in the estuary stands at 5′ at the Jenner Visitor’s Center. That’s about a foot below the level it was when I paddled there last Wednesday.

A pair of Bald Eagles have been visiting this area. They were there this morning, sitting on Haystack Rock just before I took this photo.

I enjoyed talking with fellow naturalist Larry Tiller who was at the overlook with his camera.
