The River in Spring

Took my first walk along the river since the snow disappeared…and it was glorious. The water is high with runoff right now, so parts of the trail are submerged, including access to my favourite portion of the river walk. Another week or two should see the waters recede, however, and in the meantime it’s really quite something to hear the roar of the rapids and see their sheer power. Nature has such a way of being quite humbling, even on a beautiful spring morning.

    What is it about rushing waters that draws us? I run to see it like a small child. I love the 3rd pic down of the trees rising out of the water.
