High Waters of the Saint John


At this expanse of the Saint John River at Maugerville, just a bit upriver from the Burton Bridge, is a row of piers stretching across the river. In the past, up until the 1960's, chains were laid across these piers creating a boom that were used to catch logs floating down the Saint John in the spring. This week the rising waters of the Saint John have all but submerged these piers and all that can be seen is the top of a pier where an Inuksuk stands sentinel-like, marking its location amidst the rising waters.

Let's hope the high flood waters haven't washed it away by now!
