When the Mouth of Russian River Closes

Stormy surf in recent days has caused the mouth of the Russian River to naturally be closed up with beach sand.  When that happens, especially in the wintertime when river flows are up, the river fills up.  Today, Cazadero resident Chris Greene snapped these photos of the Jenner visitor’s center which sits on stilts at the river’s edge.  Chris mentioned that there was an excavator at the time out on the beach digging a channel for the water to drain into the Pacific.
