March 26, 2022: Clearwater River

April 3, near the Thickwood Interchange and Mac Island.

April 6, 2022.

Hangingstone River no longer has any ice, and is flowing into the Clearwater, which still has ice. The Athabasca River seems to be melting in place, especially near the Thickwood Interchange.


April 11, 2022. After a lot of snow, I was able to fly a few times to check on the rivers, but the wind kept the flights short :frowning:

Clearwater has open water at the Hangingstone and at Snye Point. Athabasca River has open water near the Thickwood Interchange.
