It’s a sure sign of Spring’s approach when the Deerfield begins to rise, and though it’s not really in “Spring Flood” stage, it’s certainly up from a couple of days ago.
The dam at Salmon Falls:
…and looking upriver from the Buckland side:
Up close it’s a swirling miasma of mists, making one grateful for the railing at the overlook:
That’s a far cry and a deep shudder from the idyllic swimming hole of Summer.
And yet, above the tumult hovers a reminder that there’s beauty in everything, if one looks at it in the right light:
It’s hard to believe the high country is still so tightly gripped by Winter, but it is!
More on that, next.
