The Chattahoochee Exceeds its Banks

The Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area is under water! This is the 'Hooch at US-41 near my apartment. Normally this parking lot provides access to the park and its network of walking trails. I was shooting from this location (the green arrow) facing northeast, and Google Maps has the street view of the lot when it's not flooded. The river has broken records across the state, and it's clear from the dirt line on the trees in this photo that the river was a good 7 or 8 feet higher when it crested.

Cool, thank you. I was wondering how this part of the Chat was doing. :)

oh wow, that dirt line is really visible on those three little trees out there in the middle. after seeing all these photos on the news websites, it's sort of weird to see ones from my friends!
