Bike paths after the Don Valley flooding
There was an awful lot of rain on Sunday, and when I made my way down to the Don Valley trails there was lots of evidence - muddy paths, one tree down, and the plants along the river all patted down.
Certainly passable, but the mud was really slippery in sections.
Heres a shot of water and mud ON the trail (with the railroad bridge south of Pottery Road reflected in the water, looking like a roll of film):
In many places the plants were all flattened by the water flowing over the banks:
The water was never deep on the path, but it did cover the entire path in places, like this section, just south of the Riverdale bridge:
Thankfully all the bridges I passed were just fine, but you could see how high the water was at times - note the trash caught in the tree branches:
Must have been quite a storm at the time!
