    "If I were  rich man's son,

    I'd sit by the river and watch it run "

          I had a spare half hour so I decided to go and look at the river. 

          The Red Deer River is quite high and very turbulent. We've had much rain lately. There's lots of snow in the Rocky Mountains. Usually by this time the snow in the mountains has melted. There s also a dam that they are letting extra water run. 

         I tried to get a good view of the river but I was not in a good place. 

          A major ski resort, Sunshine,  near Banff was open today for Canada Day. 

       The photo on my header shows the river as it normally is.
