High water in the trail

High water in the trail

Last weekend the Campfire Girls camped out at Rock Island. We had only been there in the summer before, when the Collins River is a gentle thing, and you can rock-hop through it to the falls.

But now the water was much higher. All the rocks were buried under an onslaught of rushing river, far too cold and fast for a nice swim. This video was taken near the old mill, where a short trail leads down to the water - although, as you will see, the trail is even shorter than usual, now.
