Humboldt River rapids

In the Harney section of the layout the Humboldt River runs between the two tracks for about 4-1/2 feet.  The river is relatively straight and I felt it was not very interesting.  Also, at the end of this section near the high bridge the river bed needed to climb up about 1/2 inch.

So I recently created a little rapids area over the spot where the level changes.  I don't know if there is anything like this on the prototype Humboldt River but it seems like a fun thing to have on a layout.

Woodland Scenics water effects was used to give the water some texture in the right places and some of the ridges were highlighted with white paint applied with a toothpick.  All of the water was then given a final coat of gloss medium.
