Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it. A couple of weeks ago, while walking through the gorge, I had a brief conversation with myself (silently, of course).
“Self, when it gets warm you should wade out into the creek. You can get some better pictures from there.”
“You’re right, self! I’ll wade in as soon as it hits 85 degrees!”
I figured it would be at least June or July before we hit 85. Of course, it got up to nearly 90 today. Not one to break promises made to myself, I waded into the creek. The air may have been 90 degrees, but the water was closer to 50. It was a lot like standing in a bucket of ice water. I don’t think I’ve suffered any permanent damage. I’ll wade in some other places later this summer.
I took several pictures while wandering about in the creek, but this was my favorite. The lighting was better in some other shots, but I liked having the people in the picture. It gives you a sense of scale.
