Photographer's Note

I visited a friend in the hospital yesterday but since I was early, I walked down to Corte Madera Creek and took a couple of photos. It was only later that I put this photo into perspective. This is the Creek that runs through downtown San Anselmo and that overflowed its banks early last Saturday morning. The community is still recovering from that blow with many stores now vacated and many in the early stages of reconstruction. I noticed a truck drive through downtown yesterday from a company that specializes in recovery from water and fire damage.

This is days after the highest water, of course. The Creek seldom is this filled with water. Here the water is a muddy brown color. In the distance on the left is Mount Tamalpais shrouded in low clouds. As I mentioned before, this Creek drains the watershed on the northern slopes of the mountain as well as the hills of the region. When one sees the beauty of this day, it is difficult to imagine the devastation of a few days ago. This is Marin County, California at its best and worst...
