High Water on the Saranac River

Here are some photos that I took in mid-April along the Saranac River. The photos were taken from a few miles downstream of the village of Saranac Lake to Union Falls Dam.

This past winter the northern Adirondacks received a significant amount of snow, much of it in mid-March during a storm that dumped more than three feet of snow in places. As a result, spring runoff was strong this year, causing rivers to swell. This was particularly evident at Union Falls Dam, which is pictured above.
