  2. I would have danced across that log when I was ten, but not now. Is that a water pipe in the background?

    • It is a water pipe, Allen….it runs along the stream for miles, transporting the water from a catchment station quite a ways upstream. It happens to have some support lines holding it through the expanse over the stream that make a nice railing for folks wanting to cross to the other side….but it does get a little slippery with condensation during the summer, as the water inside is still very cold…..

  3. My husband, a native Oregonian, used to scoff at the so-called rivers in Utah except in springtime when they filled with snow melt.
    Very beautiful shot of a lovely springtime phenomenon! I can feel the energy of that water cascading down the mountainside.

    • When I compare our Utah rivers to what I’ve seen of the Rhine, Mosel, Mississippi, and even the pictures of your grand Columbia River, yes, I would scoff with your native Oregonian husband….but when I compare them to the flowing muddy messes that are the desert rivers from my past, I would choose these raging mountain streams of ice-cold, blue-green water any day…… 🙂
