This is a subtle video of ripple patterns that are happening within the sediment of the White Salmon River where Northwestern Lake used to be. At first, it may look like nothing is happening and that this is a boring video, but watch how the evenly-spaced ripples start to slowly move upstream in unison and then completely dissipate. You can use the stumps on the ground as a reference point. I love to watch one spot in nature and see the patterns that emerge, and this is a rare video that is able to capture some truly bizarre behavior.
