On February 2nd, 2018, park guide Waldemilson Vera captured awesomely mesmerizing footage of a hiking trail inside Recanto Ecológico Rio de la Plata in Jardim, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. The trail becomes completely underwater by crystal clear water from river overflow due to heavy rains. According to the park, this is a unique occasion.
(translated) When it rains a lot, the river of the Rio de la Plata runs slower, causing its damming, thus increasing the water level of the river Olho D’Água. Despite the flood, on the day the video was recorded the waters of the river Olho D’Agua remained crystal clear due to their conserved ciliary forest and being inside a Private Reserve of Natural Heritage – RPPN, a type of Conservation Unit. This was a rare episode, and by the end of the day the river had returned to its normal level.
