The pictures from early June were taken after 4 days of rain. The pictures for the end of June were taken two days after record-setting rainfalls (1-4 inches) across all the Potomac River watershed upstream of Great Falls. National Airport got 2.75 inches. So far, this has been the second-wettest June on record.
The place were I stand to take the Billy Goat B mid-way picture was underwater, and the place where I stand at the boat launch ramp was mere inches away from the water.
Remember to visit the Three Views page to see the same views in from earlier this year.
