Farther down the river, at the Kiwanis Park. I stopped to look at the damage here. Last summer there was more than a foot of mud covering this area. I think this is the Plotter Kill emptying into the Mohawk River. Most of the mud has been washed away, but that gravel bank opposite used to be at the same level as this side. I can't imagine how much water was coming down off the mountain to do that.
These flowers were very unexpected. There are (and were) no houses down here, so it isn't a memorial to a home now lost to the storm. It's a sobering thing to come across this bright bit of colour amid the drab greys and tans of the river bank.
