Sandy river flood footage


The Sandy River from alexandra erickson on Vimeo.


Saw this video floating around on facebook of the Sandy River in Oregon blowing out from the recent warming weather and rain.  The footage and music is awesome, but it is great to see what a river does at such high flows.  With as damned and diked and controlled as many of our rivers are, I love seeing a river tear shit up and do what they are supposed to.
