Photos: Roseville’s Dry Creek Ain’t a Creek Right Now

I fully admit it: I am a weather geek. And when we have an uncommon weather event like this? I can’t help but get out in it not only to see and feel for myself the power of nature, but to also (hopefully) snap some decent pictures that will be fun to look back at, say, in the middle of a July heat wave when it hasn’t rained for months.

Here are some I took Tuesday afternoon down and around one of my favorite places in Roseville: Miner’s Ravine trail and Dry Creek….which for the time being is neither dry, nor a creek.

Note: I obeyed all posted areas and never got dangerously close–the water is flowing very fast.  If you decide to go check it out, please be careful!

Another look at the bridge across Dry Creek…this is at the bottom of the UA cinemas parking lot

Looking towards Harding Blvd (that’s the U-Haul rental place in the distance)

Harding blvd overpass. The creek bed here is usually about five feet wide and about a foot deep

At Saugstad Park. The bank on the other side is usually high and dry and about eight feet tall

And lastly….pedestrian bridge just up from Royer Park.

Pretty incredible to see the power of nature first hand and up close. Stay dry and safe!
