A Bird’s Eye View of the Eagle Point Elbow in the Eel

A bird’s eye view highlights the beautiful and extreme curves of the South Fork of the Eel River south of Myers Flat in the above photograph taken with a drone by local photographer Christina Lombardi. In the upper right-hand corner, the Eagle Point Viaduct carries Hwy 101 downward over the river and toward the little town.
With the rains of the last two days, the turquoise green water must have melted into a coffee with milk brown shade. The many colors of the Eel are almost as lovely as it’s curves. If you have a photo of the Eel to share, we’d love to see it.
