Hurricane Irene Transforms Favorite Dog Hiking Spot Into Raging River


Written by: Phil Monahan
As you probably have read, Vermont has suffered severe flooding from Hurricane Irene. If you can help, please visit the Vermont- New Hampshire American Red Cross donation page to make a donation.

In my town we were very fortunate to not have seen a lot of damage. I often take my dog on a nice walk to a waterfall near my home and I wanted to see what kind of impact the hurricane was having there, so I grabbed my camera and left my dog at home to go take a look. The transformation is nothing short of amazing.
