Same River, Different Day

Standard

This one spot holds such disparate memories, all of them carrying a little piece of the journey.

Anxious, as we ran out of light and energy that late October when we first finished the Enchantments trip. Excited, as we started out on that humid September morning for our third Alpine Lakes Wilderness adventure last year. Proud, as Mom oohed and aahed at the wildflowers one spring visit. Laughing, when the Aussie friends strapped their full body photo armor on to get the truest autumn light. Giggling, watching the adorable children toting their walking sticks and fish prints up the trail during Salmon Festival. Curious, observing the UW entymology class trapping bugs for their collection. Sweaty, each time I pass through during the Leavenworth Half Marathon.

Sunny, cloudy, rainy. Blazing, frigid, temperate. Height of summer, depth of winter. In all conditions, beautiful.
