Silver maple flowering. Wabash River flooding.

View of the Wabash River at Mascouten Park, West Lafayette. The river is at a minor flood stage and the boat ramp is underwater. The big tree at the river's edge is a silver maple (Acer saccharinum) and these trees are flowering now. Pictures taken March 14, 2010.
