The Flotsam Trail extends from Duck Hollow, a small neighborhood of Pittsburgh along the Monongahela River, about one mile upstream to near Carrie Furnace in Rankin. The trail runs close to the riverbank through a quiet, wooded strip of land that is near-unique within the city of Pittsburgh, in that it follows the river yet there's no road nearby.

The spot from which this photo was taken was underwater in the flood of January 26, and one and a half weeks later it was hit by 48cm (19in) of snow. The snow seems to have downed more trees than the flood.

This is almost a 360 degree panorama.
