a River runs through it.

The mountains are beautiful with spring doing its thing.  Within our community (as in right down the middle, so to speak) runs a river.  Gracious, wide, rocky, rapids, and full-flowing right now.  last summer, the water got low.

I was out by the river this week, taking time to be.  Some kayaking / rafting folk were out practicing.  Here are some shots.  And some others, for run.







And, appearing for a short time only, me. 

Uh oh.  I've disappeared.

The river is gorgeous and I'm very jealous you live so close to nature.

Hey Joe -- GREAT PICTURE!! The river pic ain't so bad either! Sometimes I wish it were as green here in the southwest. We have mountains of green pine...but nothing as lush as it is there.

Hey Preacher man, looking good. It's about time to see you.

I'm glad you made it past Amazon and survived. I guess the river is a place you can go to reconnect with the divine, at least one place.

Glad to see you are doing well.

Very nice pictures. The scenery reminds me of the area in which I grew up and of my youth. *sigh*
