we were at a narrow and shallow part of the river thats why the water rose ( 10 vertical feet)so fast and was so dramatic, but the whole river system was way. went to bed at 10 pm and at 7 am it was up by noon it came up another 6 or so. i saw a bunch of grouse and fresh deer tracks and droppings

I remember getting out of the tent and we suddenly had waterfront property.
That was a scary exit. Lucky we got out when we did (you should seen the trees that were going down the river at that last crossing).
Well played mother nature, well played.
