High water on the Sevier River in spring of 2011.  Water is being released from reservoirs upstream in preparation for the snowmelt with warmer temperatures.  The last time the level of the Sevier river was this high was in the floods of 1983.

Google earth view of this area shows what the normal river channel looks like.
