We had a lot of rain in February. Not long after the storms passed I took some photos of the LA River along the Glendale Narrows. While it was nothing like the raging torrent it had been a few days before, the runoff from the rains was still flowing freely. It was a great day to take a walk along the river.

At this point the river runs right along the Golden State Freeway.

The rains swept a lot of trash into the river bed.

Here the water was smooth and calm.
