Montana Runoff is in Full Swing

Historically in Montana, the entire month of June is runoff time with about every river swollen to capacity and beyond with flooding throughout the state and this June is no exception except that it started in ernest in May and is now in full swing with flooding everywhere. I've been documenting some of the local rivers in the last week checking the flooding and here is a quick review of what I've seen in my general vicinity.

First the Jefferson River

Rock Creek near Philipsburg

Up on Skalkaho Pass the snow is still deep in some spots and melting rapidly which is causing all the runoff. The water falls are really hauling water.
