Description for Puyallup River Flooding

A picture taken close up of the Puyallup River flooding over a road in Sumner, Washington during a bad rainstorm. I live close by, so I took a drive down by the river. Thinking back, I remember I was not able to drive into work this day because the roads I needed to take to get there were all flooded over.

I photographed the photo below in November of 2006. You can tell it was during Autumn with all of the leaves on the road. This road was not accessible during this flood. The Puyallup River is a river that floods often when Washington State gets a lot of rain. It usually does not get this bad, though.
