Bulls Bridge 2 on the painted gauge

Painted boater's gauge:  2 (about 2" over 2)
Housatonic at Gaylordsville gauge:   4.60  (2820 cfs)
Tenmile River gauge:  2.55  (460 cfs)
Falls Village gauge:  4.09 (1820 cfs)

This is the level at 1:00 pm today

gauge seen from river right bank

gauge enhanced to show worn level markers

view of stairway rapid from the bridge, showing the run out to stairway and the usual put in spot on river left

view from under the bridge, on river left, looking across to the usual put in and painted gauge.  The painted gauge used to be called the "Flintstone Gauge" because a large spray painted picture of Fred Flintstone used to be higher up on the concrete to the right.

You never know what treasures you'll find in the trees as the water level drops.  Some Brony was obviously heart broken when this fine piece of wall art/clock washed away.
