The power of Mother Nature was in full display this month as rivers across eastern Massachusetts were at or near record heights. The following is a series of photos showing rivers overflowing their banks in mid-March. Many of these pictures are taken at potential river restoration sites where obsolete dams are being looked at for full or partial removal to improve ecological and public safety conditions.

While the Great Outdoors Blog serves as an inspiration to get outside, always be aware of conditions and weather patterns. After heavy rains, I recommend staying on high ground until floodwaters recede – which can be a few days after the rains end.

These photos were taken the weeks of March 14 and March 21 of the Shawsheen River in Andover, the Ipswich River in Ipswich, the Parker River in Newbury and the Neponset River that flows through Milton and Dorchester.
