Looking down the Charles River from near the Millennium Park kayak launch today

This was the view down the Charles River at the Millennium Park kayak launch in West Roxbury today.

Here's roughly the same view yesterday, before the afternoon deluge - when you could still walk to the very middle of the riverbed without getting your feet wet - in part via a path made by all the people walking through land plants in what would normally be the river. Read more.

Beaver along the Charles River

It's got to be frustrating to be a Millennium Park beaver these days: There's just not enough water to dam up along the Charles, but especially in Sawmill Brook, which no longer empties into the Charles because it no longer flows. This morning, Mary Ellen spotted this once eager beaver forced to waddle across mud and what's left of the water.

Update: Mary Ellen posted video showing that the little guy was able to get a bit of a swim in.

Where the Charles River used to be

All that brown is normally river bottom. See it larger.

The level of the Charles River where Millennium Park in West Roxbury meets Cutler Park in Dedham and Needham is now so low that somebody who doesn't mind getting their calves wet - and maybe sinking into some mud - could easily wade across at its narrowest points. Read more.
